Instead of: Mount Bonnell
Do this: Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve
Mount Bonnell is an amazing place to see the Colorado River in all its glory. That said, it isn’t a great hike, as it’s become mainly a crowded, short staircase leading up to the top of a mountain. That is unfortunate, because the majority of time the subject of hiking is brought up with out-of-towners, Mount Bonnell gets suggested.
Well, if you (or they) would rather see more wildlife and enjoy a more classic hike, head to Wild Basin. There, you’ll be able to fully immerse yourself in nature and enjoy waterfalls in relative privacy. Or, if that doesn’t strike your fancy, here are a few other humble suggestions.
