Trip Reports on the Arizona Trail

The Arizona Trail is organized into 43 passages covering 817 miles from the Mexico border to the Utah border. The passages are numbered from south to north. The Arizona Trailblazers Hiking Club has hiked on 23 passages of the trail, some on different parts of a passage. For Arizona Trail hikes we’ve done more than once (e.g. Oak Spring Canyon in Pine), only the most recent report is listed.

All of the passages are described and mapped in Nelson, Matthew J., Arizona National Scenic Trail, Wilderness Press, Birmingham, AL, 2014. Various parts of the Arizona Trail are described in many other hiking guidebooks.

To learn more, visit the Arizona Trail Association.
