Arizona National Scenic Trail iFit Series

The Arizona National Scenic Trail is a complete non-motorized path, stretching 800 diverse miles across Arizona from Mexico to Utah.

The trail is divided into 43 individual passages climbing and descending from one “sky island” mountain range to another, gaining and losing thousands of feet in elevation and traversing biomes ranging from desert to boreal forest.

In my spare time I am in the process of section-hiking the AZT, a hobby that could take a few years to complete.

Below are custom workouts I have created using Google Maps to train for my hike using an iFit-enabled elliptical. Each passage is split into several workouts of a few miles each for greatest configurability. Due to inconsistencies in Google Maps some passages use alternate routes from those recommended by the ATA, which in some cases result in wildly different mile totals for the passage.
