The Arizona National Scenic Trail is a continuous, 800+ mile diverse and scenic trail across Arizona from Mexico to Utah. It links deserts, mountains, canyons, communities and people.
Geologic Map of Arizona Trail Now Available OnlineHave you ever wondered what kind of rocks you were seeing along the Arizona Trail? Working with the Arizona Geological Society, the Arizona Trail Interactive Map now features a layer showing the geology of Arizona. This incredible resource will be fascinating for amateur geologists and anyone wanting to learn more about the rich natural history found throughout the state of Arizona.
After you click on the Arizona Trail Interactive Map link, go to the Layers toolbar and click on the Geologic Map of Arizona box. You can also select Current Fire Perimeters (showing where wildfires are currently burning), Rosemont Poly (showing the proposed Rosemont Copper Mine project boundaries), Precipitation Radar, and many others. ATA members have access to additional layers and features once they sign in using their username and password.
The Arizona Trail Interactive Map is one of the most useful tools for anyone
planning a trip on the Arizona Trail. The more you use it, the more you will come to
appreciate this amazing resource. Many thanks to the ATA's GIS Director Aaron Seifert
for developing this map.
