Ubiquitous cactus, sandy soil, and hot, dry weather characterize Passage 14. Here, visitors will find a rich, complex community of plants and animals in delicate coexistence. The opportunities for solitude are as limitless as the Arizona sky, and the whispers of wind and songs of cactus wrens are the only sounds. At night, you’ll be treated to celestial entertainment unlike anything you’ve ever seen. This is one of the most seldom visited passages on the Arizona National Scenic Trail (AZT).
