Starr Pass Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Founded in 1928, Tucson Mountain Park is a favorite among Tucson’s mountain biking community. The Starr Pass–Yetman Wash loop is arguably the best set of trails through the park, and an excellent course on which novice riders can build their bike handling skills.

Starr Pass is a narrow canyon strewn with boulders that passes through the saddle of Cat Mountain. As cyclists approach the pass, they can see the endless sweep of housing developments and golf resorts across the desert on the other side of the mountain. The western side of this trail passes back and forth between Tucson Mountain Park and the beginnings of various housing developments —so ride it while you can. Trail Surface: Singletrack, with one doubletrack passage."

Beautiful area. Technically moderate trail that goes for miles. The trail is not marked very well (two signs sporadically placed and worn out). We took a few wrong turns and got turned around before we actually found our way to the trail head.

This is a fun trail that you can get out on a go relativly fast on. At least until you hit the two mile section of sandy wash. if you don't ride much you will probably need to shake your arms out after that part. This is some nice single track with some rocky portions. there are several sections where you will need to get your bike over a metal post. Most people need to get off the bike for these....or end up off the bike if they dont think they need to. :)
