You may interpret "water hiking" as toting a portable mister along the trail up Camelback, but dear reader, there are places with real water, too. Wet hiking is a perfect way to explore Arizona while keeping cool. Canyons, creeks, and springs fill our desert landscape if you know where to look and where to hike.
So here are three options for wet hikes: an easy nature walk nearby, a moderate canyon exploration, and a difficult (but epic) gorge discovery. Read through, do some personal research, and if you're feeling up to going out and cooling down, choose the one that is right for you.
