The Best Waterfall Hikes in Arizona

Havasupai's waterfalls are just a few of the many epic falls in Arizona.

We know you've heard of Havasu Falls and likely pined for the chance to go, so naturally, it tops this list. But you may not have known just how many other incredible waterfalls litter the desert landscape in Arizona. Between the treks in the Havasupai Reservation, easy day hikes to cascades and swimming holes all across the state, and even some falls just steps from your car, Arizona definitely won't leave you hanging high and dry. Whether you plan to make a run for the elusive Havasu Falls (pro tip: relentless phone calls can score you a last minute permit!) or you're looking for something you can pull off anytime, we've got you covered.
