DescriptionLots of nice hilly runs for the more adventurous runners. You can quickly get to the top of South mountain from the National trailhead from E Pima Canyon Rd and get a good view of the city from the top. There are usually lots of hikers and bikers using this area. The trail can be rocky in parts but that just adds to the fun element of this trail.

  • If you want a soft long run but without the large climbs check out the Desert Classic trail on the south side of the mountain. ( by DeanOuellette on 2013-12-28 )
