Description

This trail will bring you along the north ridge of the Sweetwater Preserve trails. You'll be surrounded by tall Saguaro cacti for the entire path with a few places on the trail offering incredible photo opportunities. You'll enjoy moving over the rolling terrain and taking in some classic desert views.

This trail is the perfect example of what you should expect when you think of running in Tucson, Arizona. You are surrounded by cacti that are 30-40ft tall and have different vistas either up toward Wasson Peak or looking east toward the Sanata Catalina mountain range.
