For the next year and a half, she will be researching and writing Day Hikes on the Arizona National Scenic Trail for Wilderness Press. It will have the best day hikes on the AZT combined with lots of interpretive information about the views, history, plants, and more. Each day hike is connected to one of the Gateway Communities for post-hike eats, lodging and other fun things to do in the area.

Sirena is an expert on the Arizona Trail – she has completed it twice and has been helping to build, maintain and promote the trail for over a decade. She often gets questions about people wanting to go on the AZT that are intimidated by choosing where to hike. The book will have hikes for all seasons and a wide range of difficulty levels from novice to expert. It will also be a resource for people just getting into the outdoors with info on what to bring and desert hiking tips and tricks.

Sirena is thrilled to create a resource that will make it easy to experience this wonderful long-distance trail and its communities without having to do the whole 800 miles. She will be sharing photos and videos of her research process on the Trails Inspire Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, we hope you’ll follow along!
