One of my favorite hiking spot in Tucson. The trail starts in the desert and goes through the canyon with tall tress and green vegetation. Well maintained trail. Make sure to carry enough water because you won't be able to refill your water bottles. It's about 5 miles around trip to the dam!

This is a terrific hike among the desert flora. It can be done to any length, time, and ability. It's an out and back trail - you get to decide how much to do. It's great for kids.

Pima canyon is a great place to hike and get some nice views of the city. It will be challenging if you go far enough in. You can always stop and turn around if it gets to be too much. First few miles are easy.

Excellent for a quiet hike on non-paved trails. Wonderful view of the west side of Tucson. Some nice waterfalls reward you for your hiking.
