So you’re planning to race/tour the Arizona Trail. Are you wondering where to start your planning? Planning for the Arizona trail can be complex and time consuming, especially if you don’t know where to start. The One of Seven Project knows about planning for long trips. As a result I put together this Arizona Trail Planning Guide to make life easier for you.
Everyone has questions about which gear to bring, how to get to and from the trail, and probably the biggest question is how to resupply. You’ll find answers to all you’re questions and more throughout this page and our other AZT focused pages. We broke down planning for the Arizona Trail into 7 steps for you. That shouldn’t stop you from doing your own research to ensure the best possible outcome for your trip.
I can’t stress enough how important planning is and how much it can effect the outcome of your Arizona Trail Race/Tour. The more information you have on hand and available to you, the more options you’ll have while on the trail. If you don’t know where water and food are, or if alternate routes exist, then they cease to be an option. Bottom line, DO YOUR HOMEWORK! Read on and plan your own race/tour of the AZT.
