Network for Arizona Trails
Elevating Trail Recreation in Arizona
The Network for Arizona Trails (NAzT) is a broad collaborative of non-motorized and motorized trail builders, planners, managers, advocates and supporters that seeks to elevate trail recreation throughout our State and communities.
What is the
Network for AZ Trails?
The Network for Arizona Trails (NAzT) works to forge partnerships and create a shared sense of stewardship among residents, government, land managers, and trail user groups. These partnerships will help us plan, build, and care for our trails into the future. We are committed to communicating the many ways trails are a part of healthy, vibrant communities and seek to educate trail users about the best practices for ensuring safe and enjoyable trail experiences for everyone. We also seek to connect people and communities to Arizona’s spectacular landscapes through the promotion of progressive trail design, environmentally sensitive trail construction techniques and effective volunteer programming.
