Marana's Parks and Recreation team holds affordable horseback riding events during the cooler months. This is a unique opportunity to experience the Tortolita Preserve. The preserve is an 8.8-mile trail that meanders in and out of washes and is perfect for even the beginner rider. You can gaze at the natural beauty and learn about the history and ecology of the area from your guide. The rides are offered by Tucson Mountain Stables in partnership with the Town of Marana Parks and Recreation Department.Check the Discover Marana event calendar for the latest dates and times!
