The Creaky Knees Guide Arizona is a hiking guidebook filled with kinder, gentler trails. Here are 80 of the best easy-to-walk hikes throughout the state.
Created for anyone who–regardless of age–can’t or doesn’t want to hike great distances over rough terrain to gain beautiful vistas and enjoy the wilderness. Most are day hikes, but there are a handful of backpack trips worthy of the Creaky Knees stamp of approval.
Trails are divided into regions: Grand Canyon, Northeast Plateaus, San Francisco Peaks Area, Mogollon Rim Country, Central Highlands, White Mountains, Phoenix Area, Tucson Area, Southern Mountains, and Western Deserts.
In addition to a full-trip description, each hike includes:
• Clear, up-to-date driving directions
• Elevation gains
• Topographical map
• Mileage and estimated hiking time
• Trail conditions, effort level, best season, map references, exploring options, access, permits required, and where to find more information.
Written in a personal but informative tone by outdoors expert Bruce Grubbs, this Creaky Knees guidebook is a perfect resource anyone can use to explore the beauty of Arizona, without breaking too much of a sweat.
