Update Notes

  • 2017/8/4 – The Pima County Trailheads page no longer lists this location – in an email they indicated that it is not listed because it is just an off-the-pavement parking area (maybe better called an access point) without any current or planned facilities but they also indicated that they are very interested in keeping this access open and available to the public. An very easy/quick way to contact the department about any issues is by using the ‘Send Department Feedback’ button on the Pima County Website.
