Epic, interactive ARIZONA TRAIL TREK kicks off this Friday
Love YOUR Arizona National Scenic Trail by supporting Arizona Trail Trek 2014
Ever dreamed about what it would be like to hike the entire 800-mile Arizona Trail from Mexico to Utah? Here's your chance to see how it's done and sample the thrills with an expert. From March 14 to May 31, 2014, Sirena Dufault will hike the whole route beginning at the Mexico/USA border. She's doing this to promote and raise funds to support the Arizona Trail Association---the nonprofit organization responsible for building, maintaining and protecting the trail. During the trek, there will be many opportunities for YOU to join Sirena for hikes, backpacking trips and party events in communities near the trail. Events will feature food, entertainment and items for sale including logo merchandise and copies of the brand new book, Your Complete Guide to the Arizona National Scenic Trail. As a tasty extra incentive, Arizona Trail Ale, brewed by That Brewery in Pine, Arizona will be served at the gatherings. One event to try: Tucson area party, camping and day hike from Gabe Zimmerman trailhead to Colossal Cave Park on Saturday, March 29. You must register in advance at: http://www.aztrail.org/azttrek/.
Sirena will be using social media to share on-trail experiences and post updates. Follow her via an online satellite tracking system on the Arizona Trail Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Arizona.Trail.Association or Twitter @AZTRAIL#AZTtrek
So whether your Arizona Trail bucket list includes a thru-hike of your own or simply vicarious thrills, come on out, sample the trail and get to know and love our state's most epic trek.
