My favorite so far in Tucson. There are actually quite a few options of other trails after you get on the trail about 1/8th of a mile, and it’s all clearly marked so no confusion if you are on the trail or not. And the Saguaro cactus are abundant, and beautiful! Lots of mountain bikers come through so just be aware of trail etiquette (step to the side when you hear them coming), and you will be great (and they all appreciate it when you do this). Only downside is no facilities anywhere (no gas station bathrooms nearby either), so be prepared for that...
