Arizona National Scenic Trail Nature and Purposes
The nature and purposes of a national scenic trail defines the ideal trail setting and the context for what types of uses and activities are appropriate for the trail and its corridor. The nature and purposes are critical to the proper protection and management of national scenic trails and can be derived, in part, from Sec. 3(2) of the National Trails System Act.
