Hittin' the Trails 4 You: Tanque Verde Ridge Trail

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - From saguaros to shrubs and scenery, the Tanque Verde Ridge Trail is a perfect match for the ultimate weekend warrior.

This is an all-day hike. Most people take the trek up to the first campground, which is seven miles from the trailhead. The first two and a half miles tax the legs the most, as most of the 3,000 foot elevation gain is accomplished. Thereafter, the trail smooths out.

Once on the ridge, hikers get the perfect perch of Tucson and the snow-capped Catalinas and Rincons.
