Redington Road Professional Review and Guide
"Redington Road is a popular exit from Tucson for backcountry travelers. Not only does the trail provide a scenic and peaceful alternative to I-10 for eastbound travelers, but it is a beautiful drive in its own right. Its proximity to Tucson means it is popular for weekend camping, four-wheeling, and hiking. The trail travels across grasslands, dotted with mesquite and abundant prickly pear, on the edge of the Santa Catalina Mountains. The Rincon Mountains are to the south and to the east are the Galiuro Mountains and the San Pedro River Valley.
Special Attractions: Pleasant, easy trail traversing a variety of scenery; Lush and shady Buehman Canyon; Steep climb out of Buehman Canyon. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions."
