NAU Trail

About the Trail


A primary pedestrian and bicycle spine runs through the heart of the Northern Arizona University campus, from Dupont Street on the north to McConnell Drive on the south. The trail can be very busy when NAU is in session, and along most of the trail bike and pedestrian traffic is separated. At its south end the trail climbs a small hill, then drops down to the Sinclair Wash. This trail is operated and maintained by NAU.
