Runner Notes [Suggest Changes]

While a bit dull for more seasoned trail runners, this is a great option if you're looking for a place for hill repeats, or just want a less technical ascent/descent.

Description [Suggest Changes]

This paved road is a very popular hiking and running location in the Sabino Canyon area. It's often combined with other singletrack trails to form a loop route rather than doing out & backs. A tram (shuttle) does run along this road taking tourists and runners up the road without having to complete the whole distance on foot.

This trail itself is nothing spectacular in terms of running, especially for those who prefer a more rugged experience. However, the trail still serves its purpose of linking trails and itself being a decent uphill or downhill route. The route goes over nine different bridges as the Sabino Creek meanders alongside and sometimes the water does flow over the top of these smaller bridges during periods of heavy rain. This is an extremely popular destination route so be prepared for a plethora of people.
