Not a trail!!!

15 days ago

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.

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

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.

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!

great trail easy has great flow and a little technical spots to every wanting to come back. glad to be back in Tucson and the wonderful trails they have. unlock the gate drive about 50 yards and park on the right.

Great hike overall really like the elevation changes....

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

Went from Wild Burro to Wild Mustang...10 miles. Great views some nice climbing...top of the Tortalitta Mts.

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

Great, beautiful hike! We got lucky with cloud coverage in the morning so the heat wasn't that bad. I'm glad we followed the Alamo Springs trail first rather than following Wild Burro first. Wild Burro was just the floor of the canyon where Alamo Springs was a beautiful, rocky hike. A swarm of bugs kept following us which was a nuisance but this was very enjoyable!

Went on this trail for National Trail Hike this year. Not an experienced hiker, a bit of struggle. Was incredible beautiful scenery! Definitely jump started my interest in hiking!!

Beautiful trail - lots of blooms right now

Compared to the previous reviewer, we parked at the Wild Burro Trailhead lot and walked NW towards the resort. It was a bit tricky to find but we located the trail across the street. I recall following the Javelina trails for approximately 1 mile until we saw the sign to Cochie Trail. Beautiful and challenging hike with lots of "climbing" for an awesome workout!

Great trail. The loop (which connects with other trails) is 13 miles.

Took about 2 1/2 hours to hike up Alamo Springs Trail to the dam/line house and back via Wild Burro Trail. The Trail was well maintained. Had breakfast at the Ritz afterwards.

Really good trail, there are lots of options so you can make it as hard/long as you feel like. Great views of the hills near the ritz Carlton and some evenings they have flute music playing at the hotel which echoes around the trail. The trail mixes with the lower/upper javelina trails quite a bit so read the signs carefully to stick to this trail. Bring lots of water- there is nothing en route.
There were very few people when I was on the trail- just a couple and their dog (the trail seemed very dog friendly!)
