It's Arizona hiking with a welcome twist: no tandem driving, no dropping off a car at the end of the trail, and no turning around to hike back the way you came. Bruce Grubbs has selected the best existing loop trails and stitched together segments of other trails to form new loops. This is a guidebook of tremendous variety. You have your pick of terrain: desert, canyon, mountain, or forest. There are hikes along old pioneer trails, through volcanic fields, and past petroglyph views. To top it off, you'll often hike through several different life zones on the same trail -- Grubbs is your guide in understanding these, too.

Best Loop Hikes Arizona includes elevation profiles and charts listing hikes by special interest and best times to go. Water availability is listed for each hike, plus tips on hiking in comfort and safety in Arizona's extreme conditions.

Regions covered in this guidebook include Grand Canyon, Mogollon Rim, White Mountains, Mazatzal Mountains, Superstition Mountains, and Southeast Mountains.
