What Other's Say:
Luke Koenig: Volunteer Coordinator - Wild AZ"Debbie and Aaron are passionate stewards of the White Mountains and some of the most welcoming, hospitable people I've ever met. What's more, they know the area better than anybody. It can take decades to become intimately acquainted with an area as vast and wild as the Whites, and luckily for us, Debbie and Aaron are willing to let us in on some the secrets of this place they care so deeply about. You will not find better, more up-to-date information on the trails anywhere else. Any experience with them comes with real local knowledge, campfire stories, history, and an ethic of responsible recreation. For my job, I work with communities to maintain trail systems. And in the Whites, that just wouldn't be possible without Debbie and Aaron."
Gary Hart: Hiking & Backpacking Enthusiast"I needed to shake down a new pack and had the opportunity to tag along with Debbie and Aaron on a two-day one-night hike in the Blue Range Primitive Area. This area is one of Arizona's best kept secrets and lightly used. It has an extensive system of trails that no one knows better than Debbie and Aaron except the long-time ranchers of the Blue. Water is always a top concern when long distance hiking in the high and arid west and Debbie and Aaron know where the water is. We spent the night at a great camp site close to a little creek. I highly recommend their services; they are accomplished thru hikers and outdoorsmen with years of experience." See you on the trail, G-Man
Valerie C.: Hunter & Outdoor Enthusiast"My guide, Debbie's knowledge and enthusiasm made my outdoor experience more desirable. It's obvious this comes second nature to her. I highly recommend Hike Southwest. I will be booking my next adventure with them!"

Trail Stewardship - Be the Good!
We can't do it on our own, WE NEED YOUR HELP...
Eleven local volunteers armed with crosscut saws and loppers cleared trails in the Hannagan Meadow area recently. The energetic crew removed 44 downed trees and cleared brush from a two-mile section of the 15-mile Foote Creek Trail #76 on the Apache National Forest, twenty-miles south of Alpine, AZ.
The volunteer crew of six women and five men, fueled up with a strong pot of tailgate coffee and tasty muffins before tackling obstacles from the popular high-country trail. Three crew leaders from the Apache National Forest and Wild Arizona’s ‘Wild Stew’ volunteer program led the fun event, just one of a larger stewardship series scheduled in the Alpine area. Wild Arizona has been instrumental in clearing local trails with both paid and volunteer crews.
Their next volunteer stewardship event will be held at 8:30 a.m. on October 30, 2023, at the P Bar Lake Trail #326, followed by a celebratory FREE “meet and greet” from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Alpine’s Aspen Lodge with a wine tasting, local “Fall Colors” art display, and a silent auction.
Please join us for some delicious Trail Stew, our trails need you!
