Pima Regional Trail System – Miles and Miles of Bike Trails Planned in Tucson, AZ

tucson bike pathsThere is currently about 400 miles of trails for cyclists, hikers and equestrians to enjoy in Pima County. According to Pima County officials there are many more paved paths and trails to come.

The Pima Regional Trail System Master Plan calls for 2,275 miles of paved paths and trails. To read more about the detailed plan CLICK HERE.

These include, paths like The Loop Tucson Bike Paths 1.0 and singletrack trails like the Tucson Mountain Park trail system.

Here’s a snippet taken directly from the master plan:

The updated trail system consists of 853 miles of existing and proposed trails, paths, greenways, river parks, bicycle boulevards, and enhanced corridors that connect regional destinations, parks, schools, and preserve areas. In addition, there are 1,422 miles of singletrack level trails. New trail segments range from small segments that infill the trail system to close gaps to long segments that criss-cross the southern area of Tucson where development is just beginning. The trail system includes trails parks, trailheads, and boundary access points to increase user access to the system.

Looking forward to when the Pantano River Park path connects all the way to Craycroft to The Loop path.

    Mt Graham hill climb is tough and steep with sharp switchbacks. The annual state hill climbing championship is held there, 20 mile climb.
