Description

Short, easily accessible run in West Tucson. Lots of Saguaros. New trail in good condition.

At the fork, about a mile from the trailhead, you can go either direction, and then cut over to the other fork to make a short loop. Trail keeps going, so this could be a longer run.

Flora & Fauna

Desert landscape. Saguaros, barrel cactus, etc.

CCW: Slingshot, down/up Speedway Connector, down/up Bactrian & Recoil hills, Monsoon Loop, and nice end w/ Mosaic Loop as it's not quite as rocky. 5mi — 1h 02m
