The Cam-oh trail is popular with horseback riders, so please yield to those on horseback.

Runner Notes

This is a firm trail with a lot of loose rocks., but it's still enjoyable to run.

Description

Cam-Boh is a Tohono O'odham word meaning camp. While camping is not allowed in the Tucson Mountain District of Saguaro National Park, you can enjoy a nice run and prepare a meal upon your return at the Cam-Boh picnic area. To access the trail from the Cam-Boh picnic area, head east. The trail continues approximately 2.5 miles before ending at a small parking area along Picture Rocks Road. If accessing the Cam-Boh trail from Picture Rocks Road (the eastern most part of the Cam-Boh trail), please beware the parking area is on a horseshoe turn on a busy road.
