Tucson mountain biking trails are some of the best in Arizona! Below you will find a fairly comprehensive list of the major trail networks. Many systems have numerous loop options, so we’ve posted the most popular and known routes. If you’ve got a trail you’d like to share, just use the contact form and we’ll get back in touch with you for details. Rides are rated based on technical and aerobic difficulty. Overestimating your fitness and skill can make the ride unpleasant (and even dangerous) for you and for the other riders.

MTB Project

SDMB is proud to partner with MTBProject and IMBA in creating the next generation of mountain bike trail maps. You’ll see below we have a good number of local trails, but we invite you to visit MTBProject.com and view everything they have to offer. You can even post your OWN rides, photos, and reviews. We’re in the process of moving over some of our trails to fill in the gaps there, so keep an eye out as we continue to improve Tucson’s great trail systems.
