Stacked loop trail:  The ATS consists of numerous individual trails built on a stacked loop system.  Trekkers can choose the length and difficulty of their trip and still be able to start and end at the same trailhead.

Difficulty Rating:  Trails are indentified by color on maps and signs according to difficulty.  Green trails are easiest, blue are intermediate and black are the most difficult.  In general; the farther from the trailhead, the more difficult the trail.
