Arizona is one of the few states in the country that has a “border to border” trail that provides users with opportunities to see diverse habitats such as deserts, grasslands, pine forests and the Grand Canyon. The Arizona National Scenic Trail runs more than 800 miles from the border with Mexico to Utah state line, and it’s open to pedestrians, mountain bikers and equestrians. It was the dream of Dale Shewalter, a Flagstaff teacher who worked on the concept and project for years.
