Today’s guest is Matt Nelson, Executive Director of the Arizona Trail Association. 

Matt has a passion for the mountains, being outdoors and providing opportunities for the next generation to become adventurers and stewards of the land. 

The Arizona Trail stretches 800 miles across Arizona from Mexico to Utah. It links deserts, mountains, canyons, forests, communities and people.
