Fall is quickly approaching, and that means one essential thing: the leaves are about to start changing colors and will light up the state in a gorgeous display of colors. These fall hikes in Arizona are perfect for seeing some of the stunning trees. Grab your camera, hiking boots, and check out some of these incredible trails. 

The paths range from easy to moderate and are perfect for hikers of any skill level.

It would help if you still packed water and appropriate shoes to get the most out of your hike. 

Some of these are in the Sedona and Flagstaff area, so you can hit up several in one day (or weekend) if you wanted to take advantage of the colors.

Fall in the Grand Canyon State is perfect camping weather, too.
