Authorities say the bodies were around a quarter mile from the visitor center at the Oak-Creek Canyon Overlook.
Detectives found what are believed to be two suicide notes, one from each person, next to the bodies. Authorities say a handgun was found in the lap of the dead man.
No names have been released.
It was unclear how long the bodies had been there.
