The Arizona National Scenic Trail (AZT) ends in the north much like it began in the south: in the middle of nowhere. This is entirely appropriate, of course, because getting to the middle of nowhere defines the AZT experience. This spectacularly beautiful final passage along the eastern flank of Buckskin Mountain marks a return to the high-desert ecosystem of small cacti, colorful shrubs, and hardy piñon and juniper trees. You’ll enjoy sweeping views of Utah to the north and the brightly colored Vermilion Cliffs to the east. The trail along most of this passage is clear and easy to follow.
