Challenging hike but rewarded with views at each challenging step. Definitely worth it and will definitely be back.

Awesome trail! Awesome views!! A must see!!

Hiked the Alamo Springs loop northbound and took the Spur back toward the trail head. It rained super hard the night before so the trail was really clean and the ground was somewhat packed down. Great trail for a few hour hike...bring lots of water for this 6 miler.

Watch out for the bulls!!

Not a trail!!!

This isn't a maintained trail and is accessible only through Canyon Pass private property. Trail head was informally put in place when Marana trail workers were building out the Ridgeline Trail...and one can still take the steep, but short hike up to Ridgeline from here. The loop part shown on the map are just animal trails. Due to the wild horses in this area, there are numerous paths to follow throughout this area.

The first 3 miles of the trail is awesome ! great scenery, tons of petrified wood and a moderately challenging hike. The rest was kinda lame... Hiking through the resort and along the road. Next time I'll turn around half way and enjoy the best part twice.

I enjoy this hike when at The Ritz-Carlton. Not at all strenuous and minimal elevation.

Beautiful hike with a well maintained and marked trail. Loved this hike!

They call it “Upper” Javelina for a reason! I’m a seasoned hiker, yet I struggled on the steep and continuous climb! At one point, I was scaling boulders—something for which I was not prepared. Consequently, I cut my hike short by taking the Hotel Spur Trail, which offers a shortcut back to the hotel. Tip: Grab a map at the trailhead and study it. The trails are color-coordinated. Once you figure that out, you’re good to go! Such a beautiful trail and a great workout!

Great easy warmup hike for a first time Tucson area hiker. Offers some cool views and a good opportunity to familiarize a first timer with the surrounding terrain.

Too much walking in the washes at the beginning, although maybe that’s a personal preference. Once you got into the mountains more it was very pretty but the first couple miles were through the wash, which I wasn’t a fan of. The trail(s) were tricky to find at some points. Wear layers- it was chillier than expected up there. I also would not categorize this as a hard hike- more moderate for sure. Was not too challenging although there were small spurts that were steep at times.

Not accessible to the public. Private property. Zero Stars.

Great hike. It was raining. Very beautiful

Trailhead is within a resort hence the restricted road use in the directions. But very friendly and gave directions to lot. We opted to connect to upper javelina then to wild mustang and back on wild burro. 8 miles. Not as ‘hard’ as I would’ve expected. Rabbit, birds, lizards. Not too crowded even for a Saturday.

Great hike with our pooch! Beautiful trail and views. So much petrified wood. Must have been an ancient forest. Interesting rock formations. Will hike this trail again.

Usually I enter this trail from Lower to Upper Javelina. Initial trail hike begins in wash, climbing west out of the wash a couple miles in. Another option on this trail is to cross the wash east a tad further down and take Alamos trail south back to trailhead merge/resort area. Alamos trail popular with resort guests and dogs as you near end.

Awesome hike very expansive views. A total of over 10 miles from WIld Burro Trail Head.

Love this hike!

always a great time.

This hike is a great workout! That first mile up gets your heart pumping.

I would not recommend bringing dogs on this trail because the terrain is rough. We ran into some people with a dog and it was panting like crazy and I'm sure its paws were scratched up. The dog's owner looked like he also shouldn't have been out on that trail and I wanted to scream at him for subjecting his dog to this discomfort. What is wrong with people?

Anyway, I highly recommend this hike for people only. :)

Awesome trail with beautiful views, well marked!

Would have to try it again at some point, we got turned around and ended up in the neighborhood/ golf course and then got to listen my mom complain for another hour and a half, not so fun. The scenery was so so but like I said we ended up in a Housing community

Almost whole thing is within site of hotel. Nice view near top.

This trail is private so I couldn't even get it. Any tips on how to get in?
