Explore the most popular mountain biking trails near Tucson with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

The trail starts off with an incline, and after about a mile you head down. After another set of incline/decline (2 miles total) the trail gets relatively flat and stays that way. We only did a total of 10 miles (5 miles in + 5 miles out) and saw a couple of domesticated horses and a couple of deers as well. Overall a nice, long, moderate hike but should do it when the weather is not bad as there is barely any shade

Amazing . Great workout . If you see the area you will see the local wildlife .

Very busy trail. A lot quieter during the week but easy and has water crossings very pretty.

I love hiking this hill

This paved trail was a nice hike. Not a long one, however, going up hill I could feel it! Great stops along the way with benches and information about the wild life. Going down hill was a bit tricky at first due to a knee replacement that tends to cause issues when going down. However highly recommend this hike. The views alone make it worth the walk. All ages were hiking and even some were jogging. More power to them!

This easy hike had some surprising, beautiful rock formations, including some places to scramble around and explore. It pretty easy, too, for our older dog to manage. I would definitely go again.

We’re lucky to have this gem so close to town. Just hard enough to keep you humble. Rewarding views at the top.

I love Tumamoc. It’s a great day activity for a good workout.

too crowded but if u take some of the side loops that show up on this map it's more scenic & fun.

This is one of my favorite favs! It’s definitely challenging and I try to do it at least once each time we’re in Tuscon (2x yr)!

Four stars because of the limited public access (Sunday’s).

Love the view from the top, steep but great way to get your stamina up for hikes

I hiked both the North and South trails.

South trail is where the stone bridge (seen in the photos) is located. The ramadas and toilets are also located here. The toilets are in piss-poor condition (pun intended), and the actual trail is not clearly marked. These are the reasons for my low rating.

North trail is where the petroglyphs are located. You must hike through the wash and under the overpass. The petroglyphs are on a low rock face, on the left, near the end of the wash.

This is my “go to” trail for a good wheeling experience. The three feathers obstacle and big hill just before you get to it are a lot of fun. You can spend a full day out on the trails and checking out the fall. If you have a 4x4 it’s your passport to this diamond in the middle of the desert!

Completed this great trail in a stock 4Runner with AT tires. Needed spotting coming down the 3 Feathers obstacle to avoid dented doors. We came across multiple boulder ranges with rocks 10"-12" in size and quite a few water crossings. When you get to the Chiva waterfall, you can boulder hop to the left or stay to the right for an easier path to walk to the falls. This was a great run.

Great small hike in beautiful country!

This area is too crowded for my taste. Great if hiking alone, I suppose, since there are plenty of people around.

on Nirvana Trail

You cannot enter the power line, nirvana, and honey bee trails at N. Quiet Rain Dr. There is a security gate. You cannot park on the next street over and walk to the trail because there is a sign posted at the trail reading:" only for the residents and says no trespassing."

Kicked my butt. Rocky, great elevation, but not the most scenic trail. No shade, best to do in cooler months.

Great cardio workout! For people of all ages!

Lots of fun, Far enough away from the city but yet close enough.
The old stone houses a sight to see.
Trailhead and trails are clearly marked which is helpful...

A great Cardio workout, Especially if you make it past the half way mark.
The climb a bit more difficult, Quite a steep incline.
I love hiking this during the early morning summer months.
When the desert cactus is are blooming.
Once you made it to the top a great view of the city of Tucson

This trail is flat and easy I recommend it for all ages. But know you might get your feet wet because you cross a creek twice. This trail is a nice walk and it is very relaxing.

Really easy
