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.
