Arizona is chock full of incredible state parks, from border to border in each direction.

As America embraces #SweaterWeather and pumpkin spice lattes, southern Arizona state parks are a safe haven for those not yet ready to bundle up or face the freeze. This itinerary will take you through six parks that not only won’t have you reaching for a puffy coat, but will also pull you into their tales of lost gold, found secret caves, legends, and stars. Not all of these state parks offer overnight accommodations or camping, so we have noted nearby places to stay so you can make the most of your time in the parks, rather than on the road. This itinerary should take a week, with drive time around six hours total.
