    Tortolita Mountain ParkCochie, Wild Burro and Ruelas Canyons cut through the southwest end of the Tortolita Mountains, an unassuming but rugged range just a half-hour drive north of Tucson, Arizona. A trailhead at Dove Mountain, in the Town of Marana, leads northeast into Wild Burro Canyon, where it connects to trails that trace the crest above Cochie Canyon to the northwest or delve into neighboring terrain to the north and east.

    These 29 miles of trails, which cross easements on a patchwork of private, town, county and state land, were constructed starting in 2004 in a cooperative venture by the Town of Marana, Pima County and the Arizona State Land Department. Expansion of the trail system continues today. The northern and eastern ends of this trail system enter Pima County’s 3,100-acre Tortolita Mountain Park. To the south, Marana’s 2,400-acre Tortolita Preserve harbors another nine miles of trails. The Dove Mountain Community Trail borders Dove Mountain Boulevard and adds another seven miles. Together, these trails and the ground they cross constitute a spectacular natural space open to southern Arizona residents and visitors. Here, trails suitable for hiking, biking and equestrian activities offer magnificent vistas, geological curiosities and the distinct life forms of the Sonoran Desert to all who wish to explore this unforgettable landscape.
