Nice flat trail suitable for all ages and abilities. I saw more wildlife on this trail than any other in Tucson area.
Views of mountains and desert are very good. Trail can be accessed from 2 points and there are many side trails available.
This is a great easier hike to do and get the "feel" of Tucson. There is an incredible variety of cactus. The trails are very well marked, and the terrain changes as you head east into the park. Do it in the cool part of the day though, as it can get hot.
Nice and easy walking in a natural desert garden. Trails were well maintained and easy to follow. Good for all ages.
This is a nice trail to run on. It is very flat. The scenery is nice and you may run into some animals along the way, so be prepared. Watch for horses, mtn bikers and cross country running teams. If you are looking to get away this is not the trail. very heavy traffic.
