Overnight Parking Permits

Parking in select trailheads is allowed after hours with a parking permit. No after hours parking is allowed at the other trailheads. To apply for a permit call Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation at (520) 724-5000. Trailhead parking permits are available for free.

Separate Regulation for Public Lands and Parks

Please be aware that the parks and natural areas you enter from the trailheads have their own rules and regulations. Please familiarize yourself with them and follow all permitting requirements and regulations.
Dogs on a leash are welcome at most Pima County parks. There are a few trails and trailheads where dogs have been prohibited because of past problems over conflicts with other users, habitat protection issues and at the request of other jurisdictions. These trails usually lead to existing trails closed to dogs on other public lands.

You and your on leashed canine friend are encouraged to use the Pima County trails and dog parks listed below.

DOG FRIENDLY TRAILS:
  • Agua Caliente Hill Trail
  • Cienega Creek Natural Preserve
  • Feliz Paseos Park
  • Robles Pass

DOG PARKS:

Please remember that Pima County Code (Chapter 6.04.030) requires dogs to be leashed and under control and also requires pet waste to be immediately picked up and properly disposed of in a sanitary manner. This applies to public spaces such as parks, trails, The Loop, open space, nature resource areas, river beds and most every public space except “dog parks”. For more information on responsible pet ownership please visit: http://webcms.pima.gov/community/animal_care/pet_owner_resources/
Thank you for your anticipated compliance.
