Described as a happy medium between urban parks and more remote mountain trails, Pima County’s hybrid “trails parks” fill the need for easy access to natural outdoor spaces. 

Painted Hills Trails Park is a 289-acre slice of desert space in the far northeast corner of Tucson Mountain Park, just west of Interstate 10.

The mini but mighty park has seven interconnected trails that include two short mountain summit up-and-back trips. All seven well-signed and maintained routes wind through dense saguaro forests with outstanding views throughout.
