Arizona Trail Information

The Arizona Trail is an 800-mile trek through some of the most beautiful and unforgiving terrain in the state of Arizona. The trail passes through four National Park entities, seven wilderness areas, nine of Arizona's eleven different biomes, four sky islands, the southwestern boundary of the Colorado Plateau, the Grand Canyon, and enough wild nature to satisfy any craving.

Over the course of seven weeks in the spring of 2016, I hiked the entirety of the trail, spanning from Mexico to Utah. This gallery contains every photo I took along the way, in order of latest to earliest. This Arizona Trail photo gallery contains images from Coronado National Memorial, the Miller Peak Wilderness, the Mount Wrightson Wilderness, Saguaro National Park, the Pusch Ridge Wilderness, the Superstition Wilderness, the Four Peaks Wilderness, the Mazatzal Wilderness, Walnut Canyon National Monument, the Kachina Peaks Wilderness, and Grand Canyon National Park.

I lugged my Canon 5D Mark III for the entirety of the trail, bringing with me a heavy 24-100mm f/4 lens, as well as a more lightweight 70-300mm telephoto for the farther away opportunities. The trek took seven weeks from start to finish, and was an incredibly exciting adventure from start to finish.
