Summary:
This network has been recently expanded greatly making for 30+ miles of trail in the area. Much of this trail is fun and now longer Plenty of tech riding is available on the southern parts of the Tortolitas. Almost all trails here are narrow singletrack.

Recommended Route:
Starting by the Ritz Carlton makes this area much more challenging and only the best riders won't face considerable hike-a-bike.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Wild Mustang, Upper Javalina, Alamo Springs. Below is the much mellower Tortolita Preserve with a 9 mile loop.

Summary:
Watch out for cattle. Word from the rancher is that there's one bull that has a bad attitude. Your best defense is a good sized rock... or so I'm told. State Trust Land permit is required.

Reviewed by: Ray , from Tucson

Summary:
This trail starts out nice and smooth but all uphill. Gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling. It is all jeep type trail riding but super tough in many spots. Some walking may be required. I found it to be very fun. It takes you right up and over the top of the Tortolita Mountain and down the other side to a huge cattle tank/windmill at a wash. When you get there turn around and head home the way you came. This is not a trail I would do more than a couple times a year.

Recommended Route:
Same as above
