"Trail Canyon"  Arizona Strip

   This is a daytrip that will take a full day to complete. 85 miles one day with some of the most unusual and scenic views you'll find anywhere. And this is in the middle of nowhere. So go prepared and go with friends, and have fun.

A Hoodoo, one of the many scenic wonders found on this trip.

   Here's a really neat trip in the desert to the proverbial "Middle of Nowhere" This really is the "Middle of Nowhere"! Deep into the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument where the trail ends at the Copper Mountain Mine. Along the way you'll travel through one the most scenic tertiary side canyons into the Grand Canyon on the Arizona Strip, Trail Canyon. This is one trip you won't want to miss out on. Photos, maps and GPX tracks provided. See the maps in the PDF.
