The Arizona Trail
The Arizona National Scenic Trail is a complete non-motorized path, stretching 800 diverse miles across Arizona from Mexico to Utah. It links deserts, mountains, canyons, forests, communities and people.
The Arizona Trail Association's mission is to protect, maintain, enhance, promote and sustain the Arizona Trail as a unique encounter with the land.

Please Vote for the ATA

The Arizona Trail Association is in the final running for a Banff Mountain Film Festival grant from Summit Hut. Please vote online here, and encourage everyone you know to do the same! The two organizations with the most public votes will be awarded a check for $2,000 each, and the others will receive $250 Summit Hut gift cards.

You are allowed to vote once online if you have a Facebook account, and once per day inside one of the Summit Hut store locations (Oracle & Magee and Speedway & Rosemont) in Tucson.

Voting ends February 28 and the results will be announced on stage at the Banff Mountain Film Festival in Tucson on Friday, March 2.

Day Hiker's Guide

If you follow the recommendations in this guide you can complete the entire 800 miles in 90 day hikes ranging from 3.8 miles to 13.8 miles in length, with an average distance of around 9 miles per hike. Compiled by AZT thru-hiker Jake Baechle, the Arizona Trail Day Hiker's Guide is available as a digital download at no cost to members of the ATA at this link. Printed versions will be available for sale in February of 2018.
