The Arizona Trailblazers Hiking Club seeks to maintain these links as
accurately as possible and to verify that they are appropriate to our club.
But problems can occur because of the sheer volume of information provided,
the fact that phone numbers do change, web sites become obsolete or link
to other sites we wouldn’t approve of but aren’t aware of.
Please inform us of any problems you encounter while checking out this page.
If you find a problem, please tell me:
||What specific information needs to be changed; e.g., if it is
a phone number, give me the old (incorrect) phone number as well as
the new (correct) one.
||Where the incorrect information is located, i.e., the URL of the
page where you found it.
||What the change should be.
New links are limited to hiking, camping, and Arizona.
Thank you for your help, and please enjoy our web site!
