The LOST and Arizona Trail were recently part of an educational seminar for the participants attending the International Trail Symposium hosted at Ft. McDowell last week. The session taught participants from throughout the world how to build strong partnerships, and navigate challenges of developing trail towns.

The session also included the economic benefits for trail communities. The seminar participants traveled to Superior for a guided tour of Pinal City on the LOST, visited the Picket Post and Hewitt Station Trail heads on the Arizona Trail and visited the Caboose Visitor Center and downtown Superior during their half day field trip.

The Legends of Superior Trails (LOST) Committee reported last week that trail use has been growing on the both the desert gateway and canyon segments of the LOST. Through hikers and equestrian use has been much more noticeable over the past few weeks on the Arizona Trail.

Last week, Superior Chamber of Commerce Caboose Visitor Center Volunteer Marilee Lasch helped two through hikers on the Arizona Trail resupply while they stopped and rested in Superior for a few days. The two hikers known on their trail blog as Guardian and Angel were hiking the Arizona Trail on a holiday from their native British Columbia, Canada. You can follow them on their journey by visiting them online at: http://bit.ly/126Prvj

Not far behind the through hikers last week were a group of equestrian users riding mustang horses. The group traveled through the Arizona Trail and camped at the Picket Post Trailhead before heading to Roosevelt Lake. The riders are from Texas and are filming a documentary on wild mustang horses and conservation of west. They are traveling from Mexico to Canada and are documenting their journey.

You can learn more about the Unbranded Film on their blog at: http://bit.ly/Y0WGXC . A full story on their journey will be in an upcoming edition.
