Currently the trails exist only in theory. Although some existing trails would be incorporated into the route, much of the "trail" is currently undefined and non-existent.
This spring two ATA board members (Josh Weber and myself) intend to be the first to thru-hike both trails from downtown Ashland to Grants Pass, Oregon. We will turn the adventure into a documentary film, promoting the trail, documenting its beauty and the many benefits it will bring to surrounding communities. We are raising funds to hire a professional filmmaker to create a high quality documentary film promoting and supporting the ART. We have initiated a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project.
In celebration of Earth Day and ATA's 5th birthday, please consider supporting this project. For more information or to make a donation follow this link: ATA Thru-Hike Kickstarter
