Robles Trail System – Tucson, Arizona Photos
What The Bike Bandit Says…
“Robles is famous for being a tire eater. Lots of people get their sidewalls slashed as there are some very, very rocky and jagged areas. This is an intermediate and up ride and you may have to get off your bike a number of times. Pro’s tip: don’t do this ride unless you are totally comfortable with biking Starr Pass first. BTW, Starr Pass Resort golf course is a great place for lunch. Good beer. Great chickenwraps and you can park your mountain bike by the patio. The dinner menu really sucks and is very overpriced. I recommend Ajo Bikes as a good bike shop near this trail.”

TUCSON, Arizona – Mountain Biking – The Robles Pass addition to Tucson Mountain Park is a 1,000-acre parcel purchased by Pima County from voter-approved bond funds. Approximately 16-miles of trails have been built, and it is one fun trail system! The Camaro Loop was designed for hand-cycles so it’s perfect for those new to mountain biking.
Trail difficulty ranges from beginner level (Creosote, Cascabel and Camaro Trails) to advanced, the most challenging of which is the Flight Path Loop. In addition to the parking noted on the map, the trail can be reached by taking the Explorer Trail two miles from the Starr Pass Trail (near the northeast corner of Cat Mountain) to the Six Foot culvert under Ajo Road. Be aware, the Explorer Trail requires high intermediate to advanced skills.
