Description

Tucson is one of those cities with plenty of wild biking trails practically within its boundaries and Agua Caliente is one of these. The scenery is incredible, if not entirely undeveloped - you'll find estates on these steep slopes.

Steep these slopes are and you'll want to expect your tires to be touching on exposed rock and ridge and looser dirt and pebble. These same elements make the downhill tough, too, if maybe a little less tiring. Be careful of trying to zip down - you'll spill. Look out for the railroad ties on the lower parts of the trail.
