Arizona Trail Angels List

Trail Angels are volunteers who are available along the Arizona Trail to help with shuttles, lodging, showers and laundry. Below is a list from south to north. Want to join the list? Register here.
 
Note:  The people on this list are not representing the Arizona Trail Association in any way. The Trail Angel list is provided as a community service in an effort to connect long-distance trail users with individuals who offer their personal amenities and services as a gesture of goodwill. The Arizona Trail Association does not endorse any of these individuals, nor has the association interviewed, screened or assessed any Trail Angels for any of the services they claim to offer. The ATA disclaims any liability for any and all negative encounters that may result from interactions between Trail Angels and trail users. All individuals are encouraged to use good judgement, and to report any questionable behavior to the ATA and/or local law enforcement.
