Arizona’s capital city may be an ever-expanding metropolis, but it still offers plenty of thrilling hiking options. Author Charles Liu’s 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Phoenix leads you to the best of them. From wildflowers and wildlife to ancient ruins and petroglyphs, the aptly named Valley of the Sun teems with diverse attractions. Some of them may surprise you. (Waterfalls in Arizona?) The book’s Key At-a- Glance Information gives the basics: the length, duration, degree of difficulty, scenic highlights, and other important facts about each hike. But you’ll also find outings for different moods and needs—hikes with children, or with dogs, or for running or solitude.
