The 800-mile Arizona National Scenic Trail (AZT) is as beautiful as it is daunting. It crosses the state, from Mexico to Utah. It travels up and down Sky Island mountain ranges, across the Saguaro-studded Sonoran Desert, through the largest Ponderosa Pine forest in the world, past Arizona’s highest peak, and from rim to rim of the Grand Canyon. But you don’t need to hike the entire route to experience its historical, geological, and botanical significance. Many scenic views and important sites are accessible within a few hours’ journey.

Trail expert Sirena Rana guides you along the most interesting and accessible portions of the trail in 30 carefully crafted routes. Each entry includes navigational information and interpretive facts about the trail’s cultural history, natural history, and geography.

In this book you’ll find:

  • 30 hikes through the most scenic and significant portions of the trail
  • In-depth route descriptions and fun facts
  • Detailed maps and full-color photographs that highlight Arizona’s diverse environments
  • Information on area food, activities, and lodging

This guidebook was created in partnership with the Arizona Office of Tourism and published by Wilderness Press. It is perfect for casual and experienced hikers alike, so get out there and enjoy the trail!
