This Hike In Arizona Takes You To A Mountain Cabin That Sells Giant Gooey Cookies
Come for the views, stay for the cookies.
Have you ever watched a fairy tale where the characters stumble across an adorable cabin in the woods? This place is basically that, but with yummy food. This hike takes you to one of the state's best-kept secrets, Arizona's Mount Lemmon Cookie Cabin. It sells giant cookies out of a quaint cottage and it's the fairy tale ending you never knew you needed.
The Mount Lemmon Cookie Cabin is a mountain-top lodge located in Summerhaven. It's known to dish out delicious cookies the size of dinner plates.
You canthrough the mountains and pines and complete your trek at this adorable restaurant for some enormous desserts. The views aren't the only thing that makes this hike worthwhile.
Cookies cost $7 for a single flavor or a sampler costs $8. You can even get them made into an ice cream sandwich for $12. (It takes four scoops of ice cream to cover them!)
If four scoops are too many, each individual scoop costs $2. The other fun toppings are free.
They're also known for their pizzas and calzones, which they make fresh onsite daily. In our opinion, there's no better way to end a hike than at a charming spot with amazing pizzas and gooey cookies.
The cabin is dog-friendly, so you can take yourfor the hike and they can join you outside for your celebratory treat.
The Oracle Ridge Trailhead is located just north of the cabin and takes you out and back. The starting point is less than a mile from the restaurant.
The trail technically goes for 12.1 miles, but since it's out-and-back, you can make it as long or short as you'd like.
Once you're done hiking through the woods, you'll know that the cookies are waiting for you just a short walk away.
Not to mention all the ice cream you can put on top. Call it post-workout fuel.
The cookies come in a variety of flavors and are baked fresh in-house every morning.
It really doesn't get much better than gooey homemade cookies, fresh air, and mountain views.
