The Adventure Begins...

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

Have you ever set out early in the morning for what you thought would be a quick hike, only to find yourself getting back to the trailhead at dusk after a few unexpected adventures? It turns out that building a quality hike planning website is a lot like that. The good news is that you now have the tools to find out what you're getting into before you hit the trail on your next hike.

After countless hours literal of blood, sweat, and tears spent hiking, planning, and programming, we are ecstatic to announce the official launch of!

As of today, Trailvoyant features 70 hikes on over 1,600 miles of trails with 200 wilderness points of interest accessible via 90 different trailheads in the Tucson area. We'll be continually adding to that data as we grow to provide reliable information about the vast network of hiking trails and the amazing places they'll take you all across Arizona and beyond.

Every year, thousands of people suffer serious injury and even death out on the trail as a result of poor preparation and not knowing where they should be going. I was guilty of these mistakes myself at one point (read the story) and I'm forever grateful for the excellent people who came to my aid. Trailvoyant aims to reduce such incidents and connect people with nature by providing hikers reliable tools to plan and execute amazing wilderness experiences.
