The Creaky Knees Guide Arizona is a hiking guidebook filled with kinder, gentler trails. Created for anyone who--regardless of age--can't or doesn't want to hike great distances over rough terrain to gain beautiful vistas and enjoy the wilderness. Here are 80 of the best easy-to-walk hikes throughout the state. Most are day hikes, but there are a handful of backpack trips worthy of the Creaky Knees stamp of approval. Trails are divided into regions: Grand Canyon, Northeast Plateaus, San Francisco Peaks Area, Mogollon Rim Country, Central Highlands, White Mountains, Phoenix Area, Tucson Area, Southern Mountains, and Western Deserts.
