Unified Hiking

Welcome to Special Olympics Arizona's Unified Hiking! 

When you think of Arizona, I bet most of you picture cacti, tumbleweeds, and 100+ degree weather. What you should picture is a multitude of wide open spaces, dramatic landscapes, and hiking trails suitable for all skill levels! What's great about hiking is that you can do it practically anywhere, with minimal gear and no cost! Every couple of months, Special Olympics Arizona will be releasing a new trail to get you outdoors and moving-all over the state! We will be hosting various hiking events throughout the state. Check back to see new trails!

Each trail requires you to post on your social media page and tag @specialolympicsarizona and #unifiedhiking ! 

Join us for our FREE kick-off event June 8th at Buffalo Park in Flagstaff!
