An ancient forest preserved in stone in the middle of the desert, the Petrified Forest is a rugged and breathtaking landscape is a joy to discover no matter what your age or hiking ability. Most established trails are on the easy end of the scale and there’s tons of great history to explore — and the park is opening up more areas of the backcountry to those seeking a more strenuous outdoor experience.
