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.

You can also read a comprehensive article by Shawnte Salabert in Adventure Journal. Meanwhile, here’s several photos that you might have missed on Karts’ social media platforms listed on his Contact page.
