Tortolita Mountain Park
Wildlife and Sonora Desert vegetation abound in the Tortolita Mountains, a hiker’s paradise, with trails for every skill and energy level. From magnificent desert vistas to rustic ruins and ancient pictographs, hikers in the Tortolitas have many options to explore. All of the trails involve elevation changes and some have some steep, rocky sections. It’s a great place to get out into nature, while still being within easy driving distance from Marana, Oro Valley, and Tucson.
