    Tucson Conditions?

    Just got into town for a five week stay. Familiar with most of the trails, just wondering what will be dry/ridable tomorrow before the rain sets in? Thx.

    Thanks. What's the best way to get into Honeybee these days...seems to me it changes from time-to-time?

    I park in honeybee park on Rancho Vistoso and ride up to Quiet Rain road and go down the power line trail.


    I don't live in Tucson anymore but I'm guessing most, if not all of the lower elevation trails are pretty good right now.

    Sweetwater Preserve is always good after rain since it's rocky. Same goes for Starr Pass.

    If still hitting up Honeybee this weekend, suggest you park at the church off Oracle. It's the one right before the town of Catalina. On west side of Oracle. Cross cattle guard and small dirt lot is on the immediate right hand side of church driveway. Unload, gear up, and bike down driveway. Sign for trail are on driveway, can't miss it. This way in avoids the Big Wash trail which isn't that great. Even for being a simple connector, it's either really loose (riding through wide washes), or the banks or eroded and very steep after rains.

    Is the big wash trail the connector from Rancho Vistoso to the trailhead?

    Hi there, I'm an out-of-towner, here for a few days. What does Bug Springs/Prison Camp/La Milagrosa look like after the storm?

    Wondering if it's worth driving down from Phoenix on Monday...

    Thanks!
