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.

Thirty-five donors selected the sustaining contribution option, and they will continue to give us high fives every month, week or day (depending on the option they chose).
