Arizona Trail Resource

This Arizona Trail Resource page contains everything you need to plan and execute a ride/race of the Arizona Trail.

The Arizona Trail is an 800 mile non-motorized multi-use trail that starts on the US/Mexico border south east of Tucson, Arizona. It winds its way to the Arizona/Utah border. The AZT is also part of the National Scenic Trail system.

The trail was conceived by Dale Shewalter, a school teacher from Flagstaff, AZ during he 70’s. In 1985 he walked from Nogales to the Utah state line to see if a trail was possible. Consequently since then the Arizona Trail Association (ATA) has been formed. They work to protect, manage, promote, maintain, and educate the public on all things related to the trail. As a result the trail was completed on December 16, 2011.

The trail crosses through the Kaibab, Coronado, Coconino, and Tonto National Forests, as well as many miles of Bureau of Land Management, and National Parks Service land. Along the way one experiences many variations of desert, to aspen and Pinon Pines.

The trail is open to hikers, horses, and cyclist. Furthermore, it offers challenges and beauty to all its trail users.

This page contains all of the One of Seven Project’s resources related to the Arizona Trail and more. Find out how to plan and resupply, find transportation, to bikepacking resources to help you pack, stay dry or warm, and other helpful tips.

2020 Arizona Trail Data Sheets, Town Lists, Mileage Charts, and Elevation Gain Charts

After 100’s of hours of research, 1000’s of keystrokes, more emails and phone calls than I recall the One of Seven Project’s Arizona Trail Data Sheet and Town List are done. They contain everything you need to plan and execute your ride/ride of the AZT.

DATA SHEET and TOWN LIST DIFFERENCES

The Data Sheet has the most info. It gives the distance, elevation +/-, average grade, max grade, pavement sections, references Passage #’s, bike shops, resupply options, water sources, and has key notes between two POI. Example: A and B, then B to C, and so on.

The Town List gives cumulative distances between POI. Example: A to B, A to C, A to D. The next section would be B to C, B to D, B to E, and so on. The Town List has distance, elevation +/-, resupply options, bike shops, water sources, and key notes.

The Town List helps with not having to do the math to figure out how far away things are if they’re not the next POI.
