Rillito River Park Trail

The Rillito River Park, located in Tucson, Arizona, provides a serene setting for a city stroll with Fido. A paved tree-lined path and surrounding desert landscape make this area perfect for your daily constitutional with man's best friend. It's best to go early in the morning or at sunset to avoid the heat, but if you are out during the day, be sure to bring a dish so that Fido can get a drink at the water fountains located at each intersection along the trail.

Agua Caliente Hill Trail

Agua Caliente Hill Trail #46 in Coronado State Park is 9.25 miles (round trip) of a relatively strenuous trail (lots of climbing). This trail is too hot for summer hiking but perfect for a winter day. The trail offers beautiful views of the city. Although Cat Track Tank at 1.6 miles sometimes has water, it's best to bring a good supply for you and your dog.

Dove Mountain trails behind the Ritz Carlton

X
http://marana.com/785/Trails There is a wonderful network of trails that wind thru the mountains behind the Ritz Carlton at Dove Mountain. The trails are accessed thru the Ritz Carlton entrance gate. Just tell the guard that you are here to hike and they'll hand you a trail map and direct you to the trail head. When I came to hike with my dog they even gave me a couple bottles of water. Where else will you be given free bottled water before your hike? The Marana website details all the trail lengths and elevations. There are also several signs at the trail head and on the trails. The trails were well marked and well kept. There are also wonderful views once you get up into the foothills.
