The Arizona National Scenic Trail follows a roughly 800-mile course from the US/Mexico border to the Utah state line north of the Grand Canyon. The Trail crosses through several life zones and ecosystems, including low desert, scrubland, canyons, and even pine and aspen forests as it traverses the entire state that gives the Trail its name from north to south.
