April 15, 2013

The Arizona State Parks Board approved 15 trails to the Arizona State Trails System at the March 20, 2013 Parks Board meeting.

Arizona State Parks manages the Arizona State Trails System that has been established to recognize and promote non-motorized trails that are of special interest or significance to both Arizona's residents and visitors alike.

Recreational trails in Arizona offer a wide variety of recreational opportunities. To provide for recognition of various types of trails, State Trail designations are categorized as Urban, Cross-State, Recreation, Interpretive Historic, and Paddle. Currently, over 700 designated trails are included in the State Trail System.

The following trails have been accepted into the State Trails System, as recommended by the Arizona State Committee on Trails (ASCOT) and approved by the Arizona State Parks Board on March 20, 2013 due to their significance and the special interest standing they hold within vast network of recreational trails in Arizona:
