What to Expect


The usage rules of the trail are determined by which segment you’re on. Be prepared for equestrian use to be limited in certain urban regions. Before planning your route, reference the usage rules for the segment(s) you plan to explore. Hiking and Biking is permitted along the entirety of the trail. If you’re camping, look into the specific permitting and reservations for the area(s) you’re camping in.


Safety should be the number one concern for everyone using the Sun Corridor Trail. Sufficient water access for thru-hiking is not a guarantee, especially in the summer months. There are limited emergency services, especially along the more remote areas of the trail. Using the Sun Corridor Trail is an at-your-own-risk activity. Please make your plans with weather conditions, water access, temperature, and wildlife encounters in mind. Always travel with first aid supplies on hand.

Leave No Trace

Any time you use a trail, whether for through-hiking or a quick mountain bike ride, it’s important to practice the principles of Leave No Trace. Doing so ensures the continued health and preservation of the ecosystem and the ability for it to be enjoyed by future generations. Please consult Visit Arizona’s guide and prepare to explore with the Seven Principles of Leave No Trace in mind.
