The Arizona Trail
The Arizona National Scenic Trail is a continuous, 800+ mile diverse and scenic trail across Arizona from Mexico to Utah. It links deserts, mountains, canyons, communities and people.

The Arizona Trail Association's mission is to build, maintain, promote, protect and sustain the Arizona Trail as a unique encounter with the land.

The festivities include live music, food vendors, horse packing, arts and crafts, guest speakers, children’s activities, guided nature walks, leave no trace training, survival skills workshop, crosscut saw demonstration, Arizona Trail Trivia game, and MUCH more.

Since the Arizona National Scenic Trail traverses eight wilderness areas (and passes near many more), the ATA is a proud supporter of the Wilderness Act and this very special event.

During this spring's Arizona Trail Trek, the very talented Levi Davis joined Sirena at a variety of hikes and Gateway Community events. He produced this beautiful short film that celebrates the diversity of Arizona and the treasure that is the Arizona National Scenic Trail.


NEW AZT Hiking Stick Badges

By popular demand, the ATA is excited to announce the availability of aluminum hiking stick badges and mountain bike medallions. Featuring the Arizona Trail logo in brilliant colors, the adhesive backing allows you to stick them to your favorite hiking stick, trekking pole, work tool, fuel bottle, or just about anything else you can think of. For mountain bikers, they stick to your stem, seat post, front fork, seat tube, head tube, or any other part of your bike. Aluminum material allows you to bend them into shape, and the seriously strong 3M adhesive means they won’t fall off. Measuring 1.25 inches in diameter, the medallions are small enough to remain subtle yet colorful enough to stand out.

They are available on the ATA Shop page for only $5 each.
