The Arizona Trail is a system of connected trails that will eventually extend from the Arizona-Mexico border to the Arizona-Utah state line. The nonmotorized trail will be 750 miles long, intended for use by hikers, equestrians, mountain bikers, and in some segments, cross-country skiers. Other nonmotorized activities such as walking, jogging, bird watching, environmental education, pack stock use, and llama trekking will also be accommodated when appropriate. The Arizona Trail is intended to be a primitive, long distance trail traversing a scenic and natural corridor that highlights the State's topographic, biologic, historic, and cultural diversity.

The Buckskin Mountain Passage comprises the last 12 miles of the Arizona Trail as it descends the Kaibab Plateau to the Utah-Arizona state line in Coyote Valley. Construction of both the single-track trail and trailhead facilities at the state line are underway with expected completion in 1999. In the interim, a combination single-track trail and two-track primitive roads serve as the trail. No trail signing exists so request route information prior your trip.

Directions: From Marble Canyon, Access to the state line trailhead is via U.S. Highway 89-A between Marble Canyon and Jacob Lake, via BLM Road 1065.
