Closer to the road trails are mellower and the loop returns to parking. To northwest is a short designated down hill trail with 3' drops. Black diamond loop around a small peak. El Grupo are easy and intermediate trails. The highest parts of El Grupo are the most tech with 15 degree pitches and saguaros lining the trail. All trails have pitch but only a few are tough. Classic Sonoran desert with saguaros in an area that blooms well. Connects with several Tucson Mountains trails, north and south to Robles Pass. 100+ miles of singletrack in the Tucson Mountains. The map below shows an arroyo to the south, the main trail in Enchanted Hills is the El Grupo Loop north of 36th St.

36th Street Trailhead at the Tucson Mountains. West of La Cholla Blvd. Ride west out of parking and quickly turn north. This road ends and has parking at the Tucson Mountains.
El Grupo Loop is a new addition to the Tucson Mountains and a fun one. The upper part of the loop is tech steep riding across the side of the hills. There is a short designated down hill trail with large drops. Also a loop around one hill thats very difficult. An unbikeable trail leads to the peak and views of entire valley with a map of all nearby peaks. Much of the trails are moderately pitched for the area. Blooms well in early spring, Saguaro forest, Sonoran Desert.
From the 36the St trail head you can access much of the network in the Tucson Mountins and Robles Pass Trails.Thank |
