Arizona Trailblazers Hiking Club
AZT 31 32 Day Hike
when Trip Report : July 15, 2017
where Flagstaff
the hike     Two years ago I led a hike on AZT 31 and 32. This hike will continue that journey and start on AZT 31 at FR 303 (Old Walnut Canyon Road) and proceed east to I-40, which begins AZT 32. We will proceed northwest to US 89 and the Sandy Seep Trailhead.
    I have not hiked this trail before but the web site indicates that it is gently rolling with no big climbs. This is the main Arizona Trail that goes around the east side of Flagstaff instead on going through the city. This hike will be either a key swap or car shuttle depending upon how many sign up.
