The One Incredible Trail That Spans The Entire State Of Arizona
Are you looking for new ways to experience all the beauty Arizona has to offer? One of our favorite ways to do so is through hiking! Our state is home to hundreds of trails—short and long, easy and treacherous—so you won’t encounter any difficulties seeking a new trail that shows off a side of Arizona that you might have never seen before. Today, we’re actually going to check out one incredibly long trail that most people don’t realize even exists!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
You can learn more about the Arizona National Scenic Trail by visiting the trail’s official website. Here, you will find maps, updates about trail conditions, a list of those who finished the trail, and much more.
