Tortolita Mountain ParkTortolita Mountain Park

Tortolita Mountain Park is early in its developmental stages, but trails are in place and being constructed. When the park is completed many years from now, it will be considerably larger than the 6,143.73 acres it occupies today.

Completed trails include the Wild Burro Trail from Tangerine Road into the Tortolita Mountains, where it connects with the recently-completed Ridgeline Trail. The Javelina, Wild Mustang, Cochie Canyon and Alamo Spring Trails, accessible from the Dove Mountain Trailhead, while open to multiple use, are not recommended for equestrian or mountain bike use.
