Description

Rincon Peak Trail starts at the intersection of the Rincon Creek Trail and the Heartbreak Ridge Trail. From this point, the Rincon Peak Trail heads south for approximately 3.3 miles and ends with stunning views at the top of Rincon Peak. Don't be fooled by what appears to be a relatively short 3.3 mile run. This trail ascends approximately 2,400 feet to Rincon Peak with the last half mile being very steep. However, reaching the top of Rincon Peak is extremely rewarding with excellent views of Tucson and the various Sky Islands in southern Arizona.

Just to be safe, plan on carrying all your water. There might be water in various places along the trail, but no guarantee.

Be careful driving in to the trailhead during monsoon season.
