Explore the best views trails in Arizona with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Not recommended for low clearance vehicles! Seriously! Worth it though.

Not a good road for low clearance cars! Cannot emphasize that enough! Allow 40 minutes driving from Sedona.

The drive back to the parking are is a bit bumpy. The walk up starts out really easy. Once you get to the rocky part there are a few switchbacks. But they are fairly easy. The views are well worth it. I took my 3 year old and he loved it. Just be careful if you are taking kids because there are cliffs as well as climbing involved.

The drive down to the parking area is breathtaking. The hike is short back to the falls. It is so beautiful and the water color is mesmerizing. Bring your swim suit! Swimming under the fall is an amazing experience! My 3 year old handled the hike really well

Fun place to explore. It is a short walk down under the natural bridge. My 3 year old had no problem with it. It can be a bit packed but it is still beautiful and very family friendly.

This was a beautiful slot canyon. The only downside is that it was a guided tour and it was crowded. It kind of killed the moment with the tour I would love to do the hike by myself though.

Beautiful hike in the pines! The trail is mostly shaded, about 75%. There was some running water in the base of the trail once I hiked in a bit. After 1.8 miles in I made the turn off the main trail but the side trail (#22A) was so overgrown it was hard to follow. I tried to bushwhack my way down to the spring but ended up with a nasty scrap from a tree branch I didn't see under some overgrowth. I turned around not too long after I got off the main trail. The Park Ranger at the Palisades Visitor Center told me that the side trail to the spring is no longer maintained. It has too many fallen trees and overgrowth and they've decided to let it go. Wish I would have made it down to Box Spring but it was still a beautiful hike!

Great hike, 8 water crossings and pools at the end.

Great trail, very easy but you will get your feet wet so plan ahead. Water falls everywhere! Nice swimming hole at the end but the water is ice cold. Kind of heavily trafficked on weekends and unfortunately considerable amount of litter. Bring a spare plastic bag and help Mother Nature out if you can.

Spectacular view! Moderate hike.

Love this trail, easy maintained road in the beginning (Although very very muddy and there was even a giant puddle we were going through for an 1/8 of a mile, since I've been up the trail a million times we went through it) but once you get to the broken down houses and buildings is where the fun really starts. Going south down a trail right after the cattle guard is another maintained road that you follow for a couple miles until you reach the mountains. Now once you get to the southern mountain range I suggest that all stock and/ or pavement princess rigs turn around because it gets brutal. You climb up a rough trail in between two peaks and come back down which leads you on a road along the power lines, following that road will take you up another road through a couple peaks. I say again, going up these optional routes you should have a pretty built Jeep or truck. I did it no problem in my 98 Wrangler with a 4" lift and 35s. Happy Wheeling!

Did this in my '98 Wrangler (TJ) and my uncle's '96 Cherokee (XJ). Which was a very fun time. Took about 5 hours as we stopped half way through at the lunch spot (Where everyone stops) met some cool people saw some cool rigs, we did all the obstacles as we have pretty built rigs but bypasses are there for pretty much all the obstacles. If you get stuck there's a million people on the trail so someone will most likely come by. We are again at Crown King and got fudge at the general store. Overall it's a really fun trail no matter what off-road vehicle you have, used to be really rough and super rocky for more crawling but they have mellowed it down a ton because of the fires up there recently. 5 star trail, fun for a day trip.

Nice easy hike. Lots of prickly pear cacti lining the trail. Good views of Oro Valley from the apex of the loop.
