Scenic hiking can be found in multiple locations throughout Arizona's Hunt Unit 8.

Also, to the North, the Bill Williams Mountain region offers high elevation hiking, including the historical Overland Road Trail built in 1863 by the military serving the military, immigrants, and freighters between 1863 and 1882. Additionally, during the winter season, Bill Williams Mountain provides some downhill ski runs at Elk Ridge along with cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and snowmobiling.
The Grand Canyon State has been divided into Hunt Units otherwise known as Game Management Units (GMU). Each of these units can contain state, federal, military and private land, and the boundaries serve in assisting the Arizona Game and Fish Department and the Arizona Game and Fish Commission in managing wildlife within its boundaries. And although these references seem specific to wildlife and hunting, each unit's boundaries can be helpful to any outdoor enthusiast whether you are hiking, biking, off-roading, boating or camping.
The Arizona Hunting Regulations are published regularly by the Arizona Game and Fish Department. These publications will help you identify what and where you want to hunt, what you will need, and how to to go about applying for a hunting license. The Arizona Hunting Regulations has excellent information on draws, outdoor skills, hunter education, big and small game seasons and tips for things you should know before you venture out on your hunting trip.
