Solid hike with steep and rocky sections on Bobcat Ridge. Great views of Tucson Estates and SW to Kitt Peak and the Golden Gate. E views of Starr Pass and Tucson. Bring some eats and dangle your feet over some big drops while soaking in the views. (Seriously, don't dangle anything but your camera over a steep drop.)

The area is beautiful. However I am giving AllTrails a “1” on this as they missed the boat. There is currently no Bobcat Ridge Trail. If there was in the past, it has been blocked off for travel. A 4.1 mile loop does not exist. We did however follow signs to get a loop trail hike in this morning (trails are well marked). Started at Sarasota TH. Took Sarasota Trail to Explorer Trail to Little Cat Trail to Yetman Trail and back again to Sarasota Trail and back to TH. 6.17 miles. EC of 561 feet. Beautiful area. 100’s of saguaros. Overwhelming. Trails in good shape. Just follow the signs.

Trail names did not align with AllTrails maps. Yetman Trail was consistent but most had different names. However, trail signage was excellent.

It’s a great trail to get the heart pumping and work the legs. A lot of uphill but a beautiful hike.

Good medium trail with steep parts on the Bobcat Ridge portion. Easier walking on the Sarasota Trail Portion. Great views over Tucson Estates to the SW and back to Tucson to the E.
