    Enchanted Hills Trails ParkA 356-acre natural open space park located on the eastern foothills of Tucson Mountain Park. The park is named for the scenic Enchanted Hills Wash, which courses through the southern part of the natural area. Pima County acquired the Enchanted Hills Trails Park property with Starr Pass Environmental Enhancement Funds (EEF) to expand Tucson Mountain Park, and to protect the area’s Sonoran Desert habitat. This trails park is a prime example of development funding open space acquisition.

    The Enchanted Hills Trails Park offers terrific views of the city of Tucson, surrounding mountain ranges and Tucson Mountain Park. Despite its close urban proximity, Enchanted Hills maintains a remote feel for park users, who can enjoy 7 miles of non-motorized trails for hikers, trail runners, mountain bicyclists, hand-bicyclists and equestrians of all ability levels.

    The Enchanted Hills Trails Park is intended to benefit the multitude of native flora and fauna species that inhabit the Sonoran Desert, while providing a recreational amenity for the local community and visitors alike. New trail construction will be mitigated with ongoing restoration efforts to bring this area back to the native Sonoran Desert environment it once was before decades of human activity negatively impacted this area. Enchanted Hills displays a unique combination of new trail construction and natural area restoration.

    Trails Parks are a relatively new category of parks in Pima County. The Enchanted Hills Trails Park offers a “happy medium” between urban parks and pathways and trail systems in rural natural resource parks, providing the public with a wide variety of natural-surface trails close to downtown Tucson.
