They help participants have a more balanced and fresh diet, lighten their pack weight by supplying their duffel bags and resupply meals, support guides with charged radios, and weather reports. There are seven trail angel stops at designated trailheads during each of the two TRTA supported Thru Hikes, and the participants sure do look forward to seeing a friendly face, delicious spread of fresh food, and cold beverages to quench their thirst.
