Easy Hiking in dry wash bed; great family fun This easy hike is perfect for a family outing, or early evening nature walk. From the parking lot head under the Ranco Vistoso Blvd. bridge, which will drop you down into a dry wash bed. For the rest of the hike follow the weaving dry wash bed until it dead ends at a 7' cement wall. Enjoy the great views: interesting rock formations, tall cactus and occasional glimpse of the Pusch Ridge Mountains. Trail runners will enjoy this pleasent hike, since the ground is nice and soft.

Honebee Canyon is Arizona's finest and most scenic trailhead. Great course for riders of all levels. This is a windy, curvy, slurvy trail that is a loop trail. Takes about 3 hrs to do. Scenery is magnificent. Big enduro trail that is ideal on a front shock suspension bike....or NO suspension. Check out The Arizona Bicycle Association's site at BikeTucson.com for directions and more info. There is an outfit that delivers and picks up bikes to these trails at tucsonbikerentals.org.

Ok, lets correct the directions. The address given here is in a gated community with an unhappy guard. Go to Honeybee canyon park. It's the opposite end of the trail from how it's described here- if u look at routes people posted, some of them did the same. Go into the park toward the loop trail, but veer right (north) to the wash, go under the highway, continue along the wash. The petroglyphs are about a mile up.

I'm new to the area. Moved here from the PNW. Totally different type of hiking, but this is my first hike here and I really enjoyed it. Loved the stone bridge and once through that part, the vegetation in the wash was pretty. Great views. The trail could be marked a bit better. There were times my family and I deviated off the path because it wasn't apparent which way to go and we missed the petroglyphs. However, that just means I'll be back to see that part again since I'm a little more familiar with the hike now. Overall: good.

Very sandy but flat and easy. The rock with the petroglyphs is at the end.
