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.

Arizona Trail Completion AwardThe ATA is proud to announce the development of the Arizona Trail Completion Award for anyone who has traveled all 800 miles of the AZT. Just fill out the online survey and we'll mail you a copper belt buckle. For those who can't imagine wearing a belt buckle, we’ve got a copper pin that doubles as a pendant so you can clip it to your pack or wear it around your neck. We are confident these are the finest completion awards of any long distance trail in America.
Whether individuals finish the AZT one segment at a time over many years or all at once, the ATA is able to provide these unique awards for just the cost of shipping and handling thanks to our friends at Pioneer Title Agency.
In addition to the award, finishers who complete the survey help the ATA gather important data about preferred methods of navigation, gateway community impact, and much more. Finishers will be compiled into a database and available for viewing online. So we may finally be able to answer the age-old question of "How many people have done the whole trail?"
If you have finished the Arizona Trail, please fill out the survey today!
