State / Provincial Park
“Visitors traveling along I-10 in southern Arizona can’t miss the prominent 1,500-foot peak of Picacho Peak State Park. Enjoy the view as you hike the trails that wind up the peak and, often in the spring, overlook a sea of wildflowers. The park and surrounding area are known for its unique geological significance, outstanding and varied desert growth, and historical importance. The unique shape has been used as a landmark by travelers since prehistoric times. The park offers a visitor center with exhibits and a park store, a playground, historical markers, a campground and picnic areas. Many hiking trails traverse the desert landscape and offer hikers both scenic and challenging hikes. Hike prepared and know your limits. Bring plenty of food and water and wear proper footwear. Enjoy the beauty of the desert and the amazing views. This park and hike is next door to Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch which is local favorite.”

“This is the most amazing place - you have to see it to believe it! Take a tour through beautiful red limestone canyons, see the light filter down from above, take lots of photos! This place is protected for a good reason, it's NOT open to the public and you need to book a tour to see it - but it's a must see! ”

“It's worth the trek up. Pictures don't do it justice so make to go and see the real thing if you are in Arizona. I recommend staying over in Flagstaff for the evening and popping over to Grand Canyon early in the am.”
