Our Favorite Fall Hikes across Arizona

fall hikes across Arizona
Tucson Night Life

While most of America is settling in next to the fire and forgetting about the great outdoors until spring, Arizonians are still lacing up their boots. Our sunny state is the perfect place to take full advantage of autumn beauty without the frigid weather. If you want a truly gorgeous outdoor experience, there are hundreds of amazing fall hikes across Arizona that will take your breath away, but for the sake of time, we’ve limited ourselves to just three:

West Fork of Oak Creek No. 108

Nestled in stunning Coconino National Forest, this breezy 3.2-mile long hike is a must-see in the fall. From its burbling brooks to sharp canyon vistas, these sights will make you wish you never had to head back to the city.

Aspen Loop Trail #73

Photography nuts, pack your lenses! The Aspen Loop is an easy 2.5-mile stroll, but you’ll be stunned at all the fiery fall sights to see (and photograph) in this short stretch of trail.

Marshall Gulch Loop

You don’t need to go all the way across Arizona for all our fall hikes across Arizona. The Marshall Gulch is just one hour from Tucson and promises jaw-dropping views of canyons, passes, and wilderness areas. Keep an eye out for wildflowers!

Hidden Gems Among Tucson Food Trucks

Between May 9th and May 15th, there were six different events in Tucson in which local businesses offered their goods to the public through outdoor food trucks. These events, such as Downtown Food Truck Rally, Community Fair & Silent Auction, or Tucson Pops Concert, among others, gave people the chance to try a bit of new grub. Here’s a few hidden gems found among the Tucson food trucks for you to give a shot.

Nhu Lan Vietnamese: Tired of the same old Asian food? Nhu Lan offers authentic Vietnamese cuisine, like Banh mi sandwiches packed with your choice of fresh veggies or savory Shrimp Tempura. Nhu Lan Vietnamese is located on 4th Avenue, so give it a try—or if you’d rather stick to your fail-safe Chinese food, they have some popular Chinese dishes as well.

Bam Bam Truck: If you’ve never heard of Mexican-Asian fusion, that’s because you’ve never tried Bam Bam. Try the Korean Tacos—they’re Bam Bam Truck’s bestselling dish, packed with kimchi, cilantro, salsa, sesame seeds, and more delicious veggies and toppings blended from the two cultures. Its permanent location is at The Flycatcher on 4th Avenue.

Pin-Up Pastries: Sweets are the name of the game in this delicious pastry shop. Known for their experimental treats and creativity, Pin-Up Pastries offers whoopie pies in every possible flavor known to man. Tucson Foodie recommends their tangy Lime Macadamia Squares. There’s no permanent location, but check out Raytheon on Hermans Road. If Pin-Up isn’t there, check the listings for any upcoming food truck events in the area.

Tucson food trucks offer many more goodies besides just these three. It’s a good idea to hit these recommendations alongside any other little-known restaurants at food truck rallies and events. Who knows? You might find some hidden gems of your own.
