Recreation in Old West Tucson
Over 22,000 acres of trails in the mountain
range between downtown Tucson and Old West Tucson. Wildlife - deer,
javalina, bobcat, coyotes, jackrabbits, maybe even mountain lions -
is abundant and birds - from hummingbirds to road runners - abound.
Trails for hiking, mountain biking and horses. Bordering Saguaro
National Park West.
Spectacular saguaro forests grace this 20,000 acre national park
bordering Tucson Mountain Park with the Visitor Center just up
Kinney Road. Many trails, exhibits on the beautiful Sonoran desert,
petroglypths, and more. Giants saguaros, which live up to 150
years, thrive among the gorgeous rocks on the rain-catching western
slopes of the Tucson Mountains.
