Hello ladies! In honor of Arizona Trail Day and celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the National Trails Systems Act we will be hiking an 8.5 mile ONE-WAY track of the AZT from Sandy's Canyon Trailhead to Buffalo Park to join the celebration. The celebration at Buffalo Park starts at 10:00 a.m. and goes until 2:00 p.m. (See event posted on Events Page)

This hike is pretty flat and we calculated the mileage based on several maps, but could be off just a tad. We will be hiking a small portion of Passage 31 (Walnut Canyon) and Passage 33 (Flagstaff) - the latter taking us through the middle of town!

LOGISTICS: Since this is a one-way hike, we will have to arrange getting people back to their car at the trailhead. We can talk more about this closer to the hike when I know who is actually attending! But please feel free to shoot me a message if you have any questions!

Bring snacks/food/and lots of water (more than you think you need). 
Current forecast (as of 8/15/18 - looks like showers in the afternoon).
