Thinking about hiking the Arizona Trail? Thanks to a partnership between the Arizona Trail Association and Garmin International, you can now navigate this 800-plus mile trail using a pre-programmed data card that can be loaded into your handheld Garmin GPS device.

According to the Arizona Trail Association’s Website, “the data card provides highly-detailed digital topographic maps comparable to 1:24,000 scale USGS maps; a fully routable trail plus basic road coverage for reference; hydrographic features, including perennial and seasonal streams; searchable points of interests, such as campgrounds; 3-D terrain shading so you can estimate terrain difficulty; and township, range and section information and USGS quad locations.”

Garmin’s Trailhead Series – Arizona National Scenic Trail is available for $49.99.
