Arizona Trail Resource

This Arizona Trail Resource page contains everything you need to plan and execute a rideof 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.

If you’re looking to purchase the Project’s AZT Data Sheet or Town List, you can find them in our store. Both the Data Sheet and Town List are your ultimate guides for everything AZT. Find distances, elevation gain/loss, resupply options, water, and more.

Arizona Trail Planning Aids

As a Triple Crown thru-hiker have become used to quality planning tools for my trips. During my Bikepacking Triple Crown I realized bikepacking didn’t have the same quality planning tools available. The Project’s Planning Aids and Resources, like this Arizona Trail  Planning Aids, are our answer to this.

After 100’s of hours of research, 1000’s of keystrokes, more emails and phone calls than I can recall the One of Seven Project’s Arizona Trail Planning Aids are done. They’re the ultimate planning resources for the AZT300/800. They contain everything you need to plan and execute your ride of the Arizona Trail. If you can’t find what you’re looking for in these then it’s probably in our Arizona Trail Resources.

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.

AZ 1000

AZ1000

The AZ1000 route was a temporary route used in place of the AZT800 during multiple fire closures. As the AZT800 route is now official reopened for travel, the AZ1000 is no longer needed. I will leave the planning aids for it on The Project’s store for purchase for those looking to ride the route.

IMPORTANT –

The AZ1000 planning aids will not receive any updates going forward. As the route isn’t changing the only data that will possibly go out of date are resupply options and water sources. If you purchase these know the data might be wrong.
