Hiking & Caves

Breathtaking natural features and vibrant scenery make Arizona the perfect location for hiking, spelunking and generally exploring the great outdoors. Whether climbing desert mesas, hiking along mountain streams or navigating underground grottos, you’ll fall in love with Arizona’s hiking trails and caves.

Hiking in Arizona

Hundreds of hiking trails can be found in Arizona, with trips ranging from short, easy loops in the heart of the city to multiple-day treks in remote wilderness areas.

Grand Canyon hiking is a favorite for both family trips and expert expeditions, but there are also countless hiking trails at other sites, including many of Arizona’s national parks, monuments and recreation areas. You can even hike the Arizona Trail, a National Scenic Trail that forms a meandering 800-mile path from Mexico to Utah.

Before you go, check out our Arizona hiking tips for important information on staying safe and avoiding injury, dehydration and other common problems. 

Arizona Caves

Arizona’s natural wonders don’t stop at ground level. Our state is home to some of the most impressive caves in the world and presents fantastic opportunities to view the world below the surface.

Perhaps the most famous is Kartchner Caverns State Park, which not only gives visitors the chance to see Arizona’s tallest and most massive column formation, but is also home to the world’s longest stalactite formation. Other favorites include Colossal Cave, near Tucson, and Grand Canyon Caverns, a living limestone cave on historic Route 66 in Northern Arizona.
