Scary BushWhack Sighted in Mazatzal Mountains

Even more solitude is expected there due to the chances of encountering the Scary BushWhack deep in the Mazatzal Wilderness. Reliable sources have reported its presence there and are trying to assemble some who will hunt it to extinction. Others should stay out of mountains with drainages named Dead...

Boots still needed on Segment 25

While we were working on Segment 25, a passing rider said that it was difficult for the horses, and that info was not in the segment description. We believe that was a reference to the sharp, erosion resistant rocks there. In some places, both on and off of the tread, the surface is all broken rocks...

Re: Found item on trail

It has now been six weeks. It is an REI synthetic sleeping bag with very thin insulation, found on AzT segment 23a, just south of the Barnhardt Junction.

Re: Stolen food and water from cache box.

Comparing the Freeman Road cache site to the Kelvin site: At Kelvin, there is water at the road maintenance office during business hours, in the yard of the mobile home park manager, and there is the highway to Superior. It was said that the reason that the first new ramada there is made from all na...

Re: Planning to Hike the AZT in 2016- Help Please

Since you are hopefully training for your hike, why not try the notorious tough sections for practice? Getting better at loading and using your GPS might be considered as part of your trip preparations. Just after a winter storm, the lower elevation dirt roads dry out in a day, then you usually have...

Re: Very bad overgrowth in the Mazatzal

From Wikipedia: "In Greek mythology, Sisyphus was punished for his self-aggrandizing craftiness and deceitfulness by being forced to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down; repeating this action for eternity." He is needed as a trailworker in the Mazatzals. What follows i...

Re: AzT Trailtown amenities

In Patagonia, there is an RV park in the south 500 block of Harshaw Road, on the AzT route. The RV park has a spacious tent area, coin laundry, and no timer on the very clean, hot showers. If the park isn't full, car space #18 is a nice hammock hanging site. If solo, another private place to hang a ...

Re: AzT Trailtown amenities

On the AzT, the LF Ranch is almost past the Mazatzals and 50 miles north of Sunflower, but there are no amenities at the Sunflower highway crossing. At Mary Ann Pratt's ranch, 90 miles past your last fresh food, warm shower, and indoor bed, she has all of those available at very low prices. Dinner w...

Re: What Do You Wear On Your Feet?

I recently started wearing cheap ($2), all polyester toe socks as liner socks, and they resolved my under-the-toes blister problems. They are one size fits all and may be found in the women's socks. Mine are the plain white ones, most were highly decorated. As others mentioned, protect the blister a...
