South Mountain National Trail

The National Trail is the longest and most diverse trail in South Mountain Park. This trail is popular with hikers, mountain bike riders, and equestrian users. Although there are several locations from which to access the National Trail, Pima Canyon continues to be the primary access point. The National Trail nearly traverses the entire length of South Mountain Park. This trail offers spectacular views from the ridgeline, as well as the interior of the mountain, and will present various levels of difficulty for those willing to complete this challenging and rewarding trail. NOTE: The San Juan gate access to west end of National trail is open to motor vehicles only on the first weekend of the month from 5 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and is closed indefinitely to motorized vehicles at all other times. When the road is closed, motorized vehicles may park only on the paved triangle area outside the gate and enter on foot or bicycle. Off-Road parking is not permitted. Distance: 14.5 miles (+1 mile dirt road). Difficulty: Moderate to difficult, depending on length of hike. Horses are not recommended beyond trail post #15 and west to Buena Vista Lookout. Elevation Change: Approximately 1,100 feet at highest point. (Where National Trail crosses TV Tower Road near Holbert Trail)
