The longest stretch of the Arizona National Scenic Trail (AZT) that is entirely within designated wilderness areas continues as the trail bends even deeper into this pristine, remote landscape. Thru-hikers will lose much of the elevation they gained over the previous few passages as the trail drops into the valley of the East Verde River. The elevation ranges from 6,284 feet on Knob Mountain to 3,277 feet at the passage’s terminus near the river.
