Overview

Five-Star Trails: Tucson: Your Guide to the Area's Most Beautiful Hikes by Rob Rachowiecki

Tucson lies in a saguaro-studded desert basin surrounded by four mountain ranges and book-ended by two national parks. In an hour you can drive from an arid canyon in the Arizona-Sonora desert to a pine-forested mountain at 9000 feet. Hiking trails are plentiful and as varied as the terrain. Five-Star Trails: Tucson by Rob Rachowiecki guides you to diverse hikes suitable for anyone from wheelchair-using nature lovers to hikers looking for an all-day workout.

Each trail has been thoroughly researched, recently hiked and includes a detailed description, trail profiles and map. At a glance categorical ratings, such as Scenery, Trail Condition, Difficulty, Solitude and kid-friendliness, let you quickly select a trail that fits your tastes and ability. Other key information such as fees, restrictions for dogs on the trail as well as advice on when to visit offers you the best information so you can plan your trip with ease.

Sized to fit in a pocket, this guide is convenient to keep in the car or toss into a backpack. Driving directions direct hikers to the nearest trailhead parking areas, and GPS trailhead coordinates get them to the start of the trail.
