South Mountain Park, Phoenix, AZ

South Mountain Park has 51+ miles of dog-friendly hiking and biking trails that snake through desert slopes and arroyos. Top hike: Fat Man’s Pass, an easy-to-moderate trail that loops between two tight-hugging boulders. To pass, stand sideways and suck in your gut (yes, there’s a detour option).
