DESCRIPTION
Last Known StatusOpen
Trail Photo

This secluded area has several miles of very nice motorcycle and ATV trails and some surrounding fun jeep trails that offer beautiful panoramic desert views. The trails are somewhat rocky, but still a lot of fun on a motorcycle. (The trail system itself is maintained by the Tucson Rough Riders, so be sure to say thanks for the great work.)

The main access road is maintained but is long and steep which may make driving up with large RVs or trailers difficult. The main staging area has three loading ramps and offers ample turnaround space for large vehicles.

After a day of riding check out the two hiking trails that lead to Tanque Verde creek. The lower trailhead will lead to the bottom and if you hike upstream for about 25 minutes you will come across a 75’ waterfall. (The upper trailhead provides access to a nude beach area.)

The Arizona Game and Fish Department occasionally sets up a checkpoint on the main access road to enforce hunting regulations but they also check for OHV stickers. It is only legal to ride on the main access road if you make your bike street legal, and you'll still need an OHV sticker.
