This is going to be SO cool! I don't think any other trail can pull this off - but we can!!

Hey folks. Is there anyone in this event not pinned down to a section yet? We need someone to cover either section 50 or 51.

Section 50 is now our longest section, at 15.6 miles. The person to complete this section need to be either a hiker or an equestrian and can go north or southbound. If heading northbound, start from Doll Baby Trailhead and hike 4 miles on a road to LF Ranch, then continue on the AZT north over White Rock Mesa to Twin Buttes TH/FR 194.

Section 51 is 11.7 miles from Twin Buttes TH/FR 194 to Pine TH. The person to complete this section must also be either a hiker or an equestrian, and can head in either direction. Sign up here: https://aztrail.org/events/50th-anniver ... -in-a-day/

For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.

It looks like someone has now signed up for both sections 50 and 51, although 50 is yellow highlighted, not sure what that means. I'll keep an eye on the sign up page, I can do either or both of those sections.

@toddak I put up a message on the FB page regarding these sections to let them know you could be available. It looks like he is only doing Section 51.
Kandis Rausch
My husband and I will switch 73 for 50. Aaron, are you going nobo or sobo?

Aaron Schneider
Aaron Schneider I’m ending 51 at the Pine Trailhead

Kandis Rausch Aaron Schneider what are your shuttle plans?

Aaron Schneider
Aaron Schneider If I’m just doing 51, I will have a vehicle and my wife will be dropping me off at TH/FR 194...were you looking for a ride there to head southbound to LF Ranch?

Kandis Rausch
Kandis Rausch Did that section nobo in April so thought it would be fun to go backwards or downhill. Lol. I think we may have it covered but just in case.... Assuming AZT will switch my sections. 🙂
I don't know if you are on FB but if so, jump in there.

@tibber
I went ahead and signed up to do both 50 and 51. I'll be going NOBO, camping at Doll Baby the night before, and I've got a pickup arranged at Pine. And I'm not on FB.

@toddak that's awesome!
We were talking about this over the weekend and hope that everyone that has signed up is able to complete their sections; it would be sad if for some reason someone wasn't able to. Anyway, thank you. It's good to have another HAZer on board for the day. Karl and Kathy are doing the Grand Canyon section and we're (Shawn, Tracy, Ambika and me) doing part of the Blue Ridge as we haven't completed that yet. Oh Wendy and ABC are doing part of the Rincons section.

I don't know if any other HAZers are participating...

For anyone hiking mid-AZ, or coming through Pine after their hike, there is an informal after-party at THAT Brewery. Free dessert if you convince the wait-staff that you participated. The T-shirt would likely be pretty convincing.
