The Arizona National Scenic Trail is a complete non-motorized path, stretching 800 diverse miles across Arizona from Mexico to Utah. It links deserts, mountains, canyons, forests, history, communities and people. The Arizona Trail Associationís mission is to protect, maintain, enhance, promote and sustain the Arizona Trail as a unique encounter with the natural environment.

 

The trail is made up of 43 passages ranging from 11 to 35 miles in length. In most cases, the Arizona Trail utilizes existing trails that are also known by their original name and number. In a few areas, primitive roads are temporarily being used in areas where linkages are needed. However, new trail construction will eventually be done in these areas, especially to maintain the vision of a non-motorized trail. When completed, the Arizona Trail will become one of the premier long-distance trails in the country.

Arizona Trail Passages

Since we prefer to keep our hiking to one day excursions, we try to break passages up into smaller segments when possible and either do them as loop hikes or there-and-back hikes.
