The almost 1,300 kilometer long Arizona Trail in the southwest of the USA is relatively unknown in this country. In contrast to the Pacific Coast Trail short PCT or Appalachian Trail short AT, it lacks some miles to belong to the very “big” long trails in the USA. But that doesn’t change the fact that this relatively new trail, which leads across Arizona, really has it all!
The trail leads from Mexico in the south to Utah in the north. Due to the sometimes extreme high temperatures in the desert areas in summer, as well as the very low temperatures and heavy snowfalls in winter at high altitudes, it is recommended to tackle the trail in spring or fall.
I hiked the Arizon Trail 2023 and created an extra blog to keep friends and family updated. The whole experience was incredible.
