Hike The Loop was a complete success! Trails Inspire founder Sirena Dufault and expert hiker Liz Thomas hiked 80 miles in 5 days on Pima County’s urban trail system leading up to the Completion Celebrations on March 17th. They experienced amazing views, parks, public art, and community as well as sampling foods that recently earned Tucson a UNESCO International City of Gastronomy designation. Along the way, they got a lot of media coverage, with reporters meeting them at different parts of the hike.
Big thanks to Gossamer Gear, Huppybar, Veg Box Direct, Asian Spice, Barrio Bread and Tucson Hop Shop for donating gear and tasty treats for Hike The Loop! Trails Inspire would also like to thank Visit Tucson for their partnership and Pima County for their vision to build the longest urban trail of its type in the country.
