“Chunky, brushy trails in an urban pocket park with great views of Tucson.
— Kirk Astroth
Looking to ride during lunch or for a quick ride in the evening? This is it. Greasewood Park offers a series of loops and trails that all eventually come back to the picnic area. There is nothing too challenging and some old Jeep roads. The park is near Pima College West Campus.
Open from dawn to dusk only. Gated road which is locked at night.
From the parking lot, take the obvious gated two-track to the south and head up into the hills. Once on top, you have a variety of options—singletrack and doubletrack. Just pick a route and follow it until it intersects with another trail. You can’t get lost because the area is small, and you can see all the choices in front of you. Wash crossings can be very steep and rocky so take care.
This route specifically combines the outermost trails on the south side with three consecutive climbs that lead to a longer figure-eight descent; a great intro option to create your own ride from.
