Hope Camp is a 3.1 mile point-to-point trail located near Tucson, Arizona and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and horses and is best used from October until April. Horses are also able to use this trail.
Trail with great view of the Rincon Mtns. and two former cowboy camps.
Very easy hike that takes you through Camp North and then ends at Camp Hope for an out and back experience. Usually traveled in the mornings, but great to do in the afternoons if you want to get away from civilization for a while.
Nice and easy out and back trail. Not difficult.
The Quilters trail branches off the Hope Camp trail at the 2.3 mile mark. Where as the Hope Camp trail is open to bikes and is a great ride, the Quilters trail is for hiking only. A beautiful trail that leads deep up into the Rincons. The trail is up and down for the first mile or so, then gets very steep. As with most of the mountains in and around Tucson, steep trails means great views, and this is no exception
My husband and I hiked this trail in February 2013. It was a very enjoyable hike. We saw 2 jackrabbits and a very large rattle snake shed. There were only 3 others on the trail- on horseback. The road up to the trail head was a little 'iffy' in our rented motor home, but we made it. We recommend this easy-to-moderate out-and-back hike!
