Hike to the Trail
by HAZ_Hikebot

A spur from the Joe’s Canyon Trail, the trail descends steeply to the US/Mexico border. One must hike 1 mile from Montezuma Pass along the Joe's Canyon Trail to reach the Yaqui Ridge spur, making the total length 4 miles round-trip from the Pass. Here you can view International Boundary Marker 102 located at the southwestern corner of the park. This trail marks the southern terminus of the Arizona National Scenic Trail, an 800+ mile diverse and scenic trail that extends from Mexico to Utah. For your safety, please do not cross over the fence into Mexico.

Check out the Official Route and Triplogs.
