    Route Description for Rock Wren Trail

    Tucson Mountain Park has plenty of trails to explore, each showing off the desert mountains in their own way. The Rock Wren Trail is known for awesome Sonoran Desert scenery and a moderate challenge. While we offer several guides that use Rock Wren Trail as part of longer loops, this guide details Rock Wren on its own. It allows you to appreciate the plants and animals that call this park home and to get a moderate workout in.

    This route is quite rocky, so we recommend sturdy boots. Bring plenty of water and avoid hiking in the heat of the day if you can. Additionally, remember that dogs are not permitted in the park, which is important to adhere to due to coyote sightings on this trail.

    From the trailhead at the end of the street, you’ll take Rock Wren Trail down into the park, half-looping around a hill, crossing a wash, and then making your way through the hills as you dip your way into and out of the park boundary. When you reach a 5-way junction, take a sharp right. The trail terminates along a wash, where you’ll turn around and retrace your steps back to the trailhead.
