September 30th - National Public Lands Day on the Arizona Trail

National Public Lands Day image National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands. It's a great time to give back to our nation's network of lands in which we play, learn, exercise, relax and live.

The Arizona Trail Association and Peace Surplus are working together on NPLD to improve AZT Passage 29 near Mormon Lake. We'll be clearing brush, repairing tread and installing drainage on approximately 1.5 miles of trail close to the Double Springs Campground. Join us in our efforts to improve the trail and increase public awareness of the importance of YOUR public lands!

All tools, training and lunch will be provided - just bring your hard working attitude! Visit this link to register or email with questions.

Wildlife Shirts Celebrate the AZT

Wildlife Shirt The Arizona Trail Association has joined forces with Peace Surplus to create a comfortable work of art that celebrates wildlife and the Arizona Trail. The shirt features the profile of a Roosevelt elk, complete with images of the San Francisco Peaks, the AZT, and the botanical and biological resources that make northern Arizona so special. Shirts are available in two colors in both men's and women's styles in a super soft cotton-poly blend from Next Level Apparel, and 50% of proceeds benefit the ATA.

These are only available at Peace Surplus in Flagstaff (14 W. Route 66). Stop by and pick one up while they're still available!

Arizona Trail Closure in Flagstaff

The first phase of the Flagstaff Watershed Protection Project (FWPP) begins on Thursday, August 10. Because of that logging project a portion of the Arizona National Scenic Trail will be closed in Passage 33 (Flagstaff). This phase of the project is anticipated to go until the end of December 2017.

For a map showing the closure area and a suggested detour, see the closure map. Another possible detour would be to use Passage 32 (Elden Mountain) and go around Flagstaff.
