Phoenix With Kids

Short water hike, great for kids, Badger Springs

Badger Springs Trail - Trailhead to Agua Fria River - Located off Badger Springs Road, exit on I-17 within the Agua Fria National Monument.

Hiking the Badger Springs Trail with kids is a fantastic day trip option from Phoenix. The in-and-out hike is less than a mile to the gentle beginnings of the Agua Fria River, and offers shallow water and swimming holes that will delight toddlers to teenagers! #hikingadventures #arizona

Note that this is a SEASONAL water hike. There is usually no water here past the end of June.
