Likely In-Season!
From Pima Canyon Trailhead head out on Desert Classic, immediately turn up to Marco de Niza rock. Trail continues up either side and meets quickly. Trail continues up and down along ridge to junction with Beverly Canyon Trail - South.


The trail heads up and becomes a tad more difficult to follow after passing San Gabriel Ridge (keep left, don't go right down to National. Once past the route trouble the trail is easy to follow all the way to the junction with San Gabriel Canyon.

The faint use trail continues on over to Corona de Loma - East Ridge. The Guadalupe Ridge ends here at Eagle Pass. On the other side of Eagle Pass is Corona de Loma. A right quickly takes you down to the National Trail, Buena Vista Trailhead is near.

This trail is not signed anywhere. It is a heavily used use-trail. Especially in the middle section where residents of San Gabriel neighborhood utilize the ridge for various loops.

    To Pima Canyon Trailhead
    This one is a little tough to locate if you're not from the area. It's near Guadalupe Rd. The issue at hand is there are no on-off ramps for Guadalupe Rd. Instead get off south a mile on Elliot and follow 48th Street north.

    Pima Canyon Trailhead is located west off of 48th Street just south of Guadalupe Road. It's all rather confusing. Your first time just go to the intersection of Guadalupe & 48th then head south. Take the first right and an immediate left into South Mountain/Phx Preserves Park. Follow the access road passing the golf course all the way to the trailhead.

    Pima Canyon Trailhead and Marco de Niza Trailhead are one and the same now. Long ago the road continued to Pima Canyon Trailhead.

    From PHX (I-10 & AZ-51) 10.9 mi - about 18 mins
    From TUC (Jct 1-10 & Grant) 101 mi - about 1 hour 32 mins
    From FLG (Jct I-17 & I-40) 155 mi - about 2 hours 25 mins
