The idea of a non-motorized trail
traversing Arizona from Mexico to Utah
was conceived by Dale Shewalter, a Flagstaff
public school teacher, after numerous
long-distance hikes throughout the state. In
1985 Dale walked from Nogales to Fredonia
to begin mapping the initial alignment for the
Arizona Trail. He then worked with the land
management agencies, hiking and equestrian
organizations, and several individuals to
finalize the route and gather support for the
Arizona Trail. His enthusiasm, tenacity and
love of Arizona's backcountry sustained the
Trail through its early development.
A long-distance trail that highlights the
State's biologic, geologic and historic
diversity is now a reality. All present and
future trail users who hike, bike or use
equestrian travel on this incredible trail say...
"Thank you, Dale."
