Description

A difficult trail, but worth every hard breath. Ride east to west for a lung busting climb, or west to east for some technical descent.

This trail connects Starr Pass Trail to Robles or loops back to 36th Street Trail.

Take a right at this beatifully landscaped intersection to stay on the Explorer Trail, go left to challenge yourself on the Cat Mountain Trail, which is probably the most technically challenging climb/descent combo in the Tucsons. Photo is looking north.
