Explore the Arizona Peace Trail

A loop system of off-highway trails from Yuma to Bullhead City

The Arizona Peace Trail is a 750 mile long Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Loop Trail that explores the dramatic and remote Sonoran Desert landscapes of western Arizona.  The trail stretches from Yuma, AZ in the South to Bullhead City, AZ in the North.  While riding the Arizona Peace Trail, the OHV enthusiast will travel through some of the most beautiful parts of the Southwestern United States Deserts which feature 1000's of tall saguaro cactus, red rock landscapes, sand filled washes, narrow canyons, and mountain passes.  The OHV rider will experience dramatic elevation changes that range from 170 ft. along the banks of the Colorado River to the 7070 ft. mountain tops in the Hualapai Mountains.


The Arizona Peace Trail (AZPT) is full of excitement for all types of OHV riders.  UTVs, ATVs, Dirt Bikes, Dual Sport Bikes, and Full Size 4x4s can enjoy trails ranging from easy graded dirt roads, challenging hill climbs, and even specialized rock crawling routes.  While on the Arizona Peace Trail, the OHV rider will experience fun terrain variations, picturesque landscapes, and historical sites/facts including numerous abandoned mines, ghost towns and other interesting artifacts from the past.  OHV riders should also expect to see a variety of plants and wildlife throughout the trail including deer, antelope, owls, snakes, and more desert wildlife.

The Arizona Peace Trail is ideal for a day trip to explore a particular area... an overnight adventure... or a several day expedition!  Combine the Arizona Peace Trail with the hundreds of miles of side trails and connector trails that reach as far away as the Phoenix area, the OHV enthusiast can explore thousands of miles of trails in the state with the friendliest OHV laws.
