Art “Karts” Huseonica recently set a new Arizona Trail record by yo-yoing the trail in one calendar year.
On December 12, 2018 at 12:00PM Karts and a small group of friends and officials from the Arizona Trail Association reached the trail’s southern terminus on the Mexican border. This completed Kart’s 1,600 mile round-trip of the grueling Arizona Trail, one of the United States’ long-distance national scenic trials. He referred to it as his Arizonian Grit hike.
Only two other hikers have soloed the Arizona Trail in one calendar year.

Beads of Courage were also an integral part of this unique adventure.
