Here are a few of our hiking recommendations in Southern Arizona. Hundreds of great hikes exist and we all have our favorites. Some require an overnight stay and others are just a day trip from town. Ms. Karen has her favs, the Chiricahua Mountains being on top, but we won’t bog you down with the details. Suffice to say, any one of these is great for some reason. Perhaps in the future, we will categorize them accordingly. If you are a hiking enthusiast, you will enjoy these posts.

Dogs are not allowed in the Coronado National Forest, except the Pusch Ridge Wilderness Area and the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area, which is roughly the area in the Catalina Mountains which is West of the Catalina Highway. Dogs are allowed in Catalina State Park.
