The Arizona Trail is a ~800 mile National Scenic Trail that runs the length of the State starting at the Mexico border and ending at the Utah border. It generally runs South to North and is not exclusively a hiking trail. It is shared with mountain bikers, horse packers and cross-country skiers in the winter.  The Arizona National Scenic Trail connects deserts, mountains, forests, canyons, wilderness, history, communities and people. This non-motorized trail showcases Arizona’s diverse vegetation, wildlife and scenery, and unique historic and cultural sites. 

We hiked a small section of the Arizona Trail while visiting the Grand Canyon. This section is just outside of the park in the Kaibab National Forest. The trail can be hard to follow during the winter months so a spring or fall hike is likely best.  You can visit the The Arizona Trail Association (ATA) website for excellent information and maps for the Trail.
