Phoenician Lilia Menconi grew up on these trails, and in Moon Take a Hike Phoenix, she shows you the best hikes in and around the city—all within two hours of Phoenix. With details on public transportation options and clear directions on how to reach the trailhead, Menconi has all the bases covered. Suggested lists of hikes include:
Best Historical Hikes
