Reckon far as Arizona goes, the 10,500-acre Fishhooks Wilderness is extremely remote.

It contains no established roads or trails. Like trying to find a fish hook in a hay stack..

Thanks to everyone for a REALLY fun thread. Scott, sorry to not be of help. I am technomoronman.

McCanster, not the furthest point but I've heard that for a town its size [less than a 1,000 people] Dubois, WY is farther form an interstate than any other.

In NC the most remote is 11 miles, the summit of Mt Sequoyah to the nearest road (in the GSMNP). I think there are places as remote in the the Alligator River Refuge or Dare county bombing range of eastern NC. Although there are roads many are gated and not accessed by private vehicle.

Bump for this interesting thread, lots of cool spots listed here.

I would be interested to expand the OP's question to not just U.S. states, but to international areas as well.

This may note be remote in terms of distance from roads and all that, but the upper section of Mud Creek Canyon on Mount Shasta is pretty inaccessible. I doubt many people, if anyone at all, has ventured in there. It is pretty inhospitable:
