A fun trail that winds across the Tortolita Mountains. It can be driven in either direction, but locals usually start in Catalina where there are more side roads to explore on public State Trust Land, rather than private land. It’s a popular area for UTVs and ATVs. Also, there is a convenient staging area at the start.

The west side of the trail has “private property” signs and a shoddily wired-up fence, but they are not legal signs. Went ahead and took down the fence and went on through, closed it up again once I went through. Gotta love people who think they own everything.

The west end of the trail has been blocked by land owners. Sill is accessible from the east side.
