excellent hike. crowded on the pave side

Great way to get a workout in! My first time was rough but I did it. My boyfriend made me push it!

Beautiful today especially with the snow views

The steep incline of this trail can be a good leg workout for a short hike with great cityscape views!!!

Cool piece of history. Not a tough hike but neat nonetheless!

Cute little trail that's well maintained by the county. Downfall is nearby by traffic noise, but it's pretty mild. Had to park to ourselves as well.

Did this hike last month but forgot to log it. Love this Arboretum. So beautiful. I like learning about the desert landscape.

Really enjoy this gem. Not quite 3 miles and 750 ft of gain. Its a quick hike that depending on pace can be a stroll up the hill or a nice cardio workout. I hiked it at night and the city skylines provide amazing views.

Nice, flat stroll on the lake. There are a lot of electric scooters sharing the path so be thoughtful.

Nice and easy...

This was the last trail we did in Petrified Forest and while the size of the logs was impressive, the colors were nothing like Jasper Forest.

Awesome cardio hike with an amazing view.

Not much of a trail, especially with a large dog.

It was my first hike in Tucson and it was great. I wore a ruck (weighted backpack) while doing it and it kicked my butt! The steep elevation gains on this short hike are just the right amount of tough (even without a ruck on). The views from the top are gorgeous, especially being surrounded by the cacti. I would definitely recommend this short hike. It took about an hours time total, not including stopping at the top.

More of a walk than a hike. Saw a park and smelled the canal.

Nicely paved trail along a dried up river or wash. the trail shown on app is a small section of a larger trail system. we parked at Rio Vista Community Park to access the trail.

Nice walk can’t wait to go back in the spring to see the the flowers in bloom

The trail is a hard hill trail. Great views and fantastic wild life and information along the trail.

Great training or exercise hike. It does get busy, but the more the merrier. The view of Tucson from the top is amazing.

Nice Mountain View’s from a far. Trails are nice and for the most part clean. They have archery and disc golf for entertainment or bring your dog and have a nice play area for them.

Quick, but steep- a good workout you can do in about an hour or so. I always go at night for the (almost!) 360 city lights scenery. Around this time of year (early winter, late fall) there’s a lot of people around 5-7 pm even though it’ll be pitch dark.

Nice easy hike including Hunts Tomb and Lizard Trail.

Beautiful spot. Worth stopping by and taking the short walk.

The $15 entrance fee (adult) is well worth it, as is the drive to Boyce. The weather was perfect today & the fall colors are mesmerizing. A person could spend all day here, there's so much to see -- and plenty of benches throughout the park to just sit & relax. The trails are well marked so you can't get lost, except in the beauty of your surroundings. I would highly recommend Boyce, especially for people who want a "hike" but nothing strenuous or overly taxing.

Easy walking trail with great views and educational pieces.
