Sweetwater is one of the newest additions to the Tucson trail-system, and it’s popularity has exploded. A new, bigger parking area is complete, but please be kind and considerate with the neighbors, as they’re not thrilled with all the cars parked at the end of the road.
This is another close in, easy ride. It is relatively flat, some jeep trail, dirt road, asphalt, and single track. You will see petroglyphs, cattle, open range, windmills, and part of Rancho Vistoso. But if you want to make this an all-day epic, Honeybee/Rail X is just a small part of the entire Tortolita trail system.
