Hike with future Citizens
by HAZ_Hikebot

Likely In-Season!
Border Trail #45 is a 4 mile one way hike. Located 60 miles south-southwest of Tucson Arizona. A high clearance 4x4 vehicle and a competent driver is recommended to access the trailhead. March and November are the best months to enjoy this hike.

A little-used pathway (at least by documented citizens) called the Border Trail. This foot and horse path was put here to provide access for maintenance of the international boundary fence. It leads over the grassy foothills of the Pajaritos to the end of the Summit Motorway (FR 39A), which may sound like a thoroughfare, but it's a 4-wheel drive road.

Technically you can use this as an exit from Sycamore Canyon Trail #40, but nobody in their right mind would do so.
