Fredonia, AZ & Kanab, UT

The tiny town of Fredonia is Arizona’s northernmost city and does not offer much in the way of services. Kanab, just over the border in Utah, has all the facilities needed for trail users. Kanab is known as “Little Hollywood” because of its rich movie history. It is also popular with outdoor enthusiasts visiting nearby attractions such as Zion and Bryce National Parks.
