    Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation (NRPR) will dedicate the San Joaquin Trailhead on Saturday, April 23, at 10 a.m.  The trailhead is open for the use of all non-motorized trail users, but particularly the equestrian community.  In fact, the County Line Riders of Catalina will bring their horses to ride the trail after the dedication.

    The San Joaquin Trailhead is a dirt lot that can accommodate up to 15 horse rigs. Why dirt? Because it’s a soft surface for horse hooves. A permanent cement mounting block helps equestrians get into their saddles. The trailhead is located at the north end of South San Joaquin Road next to the Central Arizona Project (CAP). The parking lot provides access to the Well Road Trail in Tucson Mountain Park with connections to the Park’s 62 miles of trails.


    “The trailhead is a result of partnerships with many agencies,” said Steve Anderson, NRPR Planning Division Manager. “We appreciate collaborations with the Pima County Department of Transportation, Pima County Real Property Division, the Central Arizona Project, the Bureau of Reclamation, El Paso Natural Gas, and all of the trail volunteers.”
    Speakers at the dedication include:

    • Steve Anderson, Planning Division Manager, Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation 
    • Neil Stitzer, Trails Coordinator, Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation
    • Sue Clark, President, Pima Trails Association 
    • Tom Fitzgerald, Land and Survey Supervisor, CAP
    • Karen Cesare, President and Owner, Novak Environmental, Inc., and CAP Board Member
