Nirvana Trail

This great network of trails starts at Quiet Rain Drive in Rancho Vistoso west of Oracle Road. Find Quiet Rain Drive, and before the gate, you look right and see a dirt road up an small embankment under some power lines. Park here. There is room for 3-4 vehicles. Ride north on the dirt road for about 1 mile, pass through a cattle gate, and then go about 50 yards, right below Power Pole 86, look for the single track headed northeast. This single track winds north and then eventually back west where it meets the powerline road at pole #88. Cross the road and continue on the obvious single track heading west. There are several variations of this trail, but my favorite is at a junction west of the four major washes you cross through, head north. This track goes through an open valley, eventually meeting up with Edwin Road (the pinal/pima county line). Ride west on the road for about 1 mile and take the obvious two track that leads south west toward the cattle pond. There is an vague single track back east from the cattle pond that provides a great loop all the way back to the powerline road. Great ride and really fun. No sand and few rocks. Watch the cactus.

Summary:
This trail is on state trust land which means it is closed to those who do not have a use permit. The enforcement is spotty but expect to pay $80 plus if you are caught in the area without a pass. Passes are available for state residents at the state trust land office in downtown Tucson for $20. A Hunting license from the state will suffice.

Recommended Route:
Locals only

Summary:
This trail is a not-too-well known secret in Ranch Vistoso which runs into the foothills of the Tortolita Mountains all the way to Edwin Road windmill and back in a huge loop of 13-15 miles. There are great rides back down parts of the Honey Bee wash that then loop up a small hill and back to the powerline road. Don't ride the road--take the singletrack.

Recommended Route:
Counterclockwise is best.
