Star Pass – Tucson, AZ

by Theillcracker

Once parked, follow the Jeep trail to the edge of the state park. Once in the park, follow the trail for another 2 miles untill you reach a fork (This is the start of the loop). Stay left. After a few more miles, you will ride out of the park for about another mile or so. Be on the lookout for the trail on your right (this part can be tricky for first timers) you want to jump on the first one after you see pavement again. Here you will climb the hardest hill of the loop and then enter the wash. You will then complete the loop and ride the first part out again. Note: there is a lot of development going on around there, and more importantly there are tons of trails out there that can be woven to create new rides. I suggest any first-timmers to ride with someone who’s been out there or buy “The Map”.

Star Pass Trail Map

To get to Star Pass, drive West on 6th street untill it turns into St. Mary’s. Continue on St. Mary’s and drive past Pima Community College and Greesewood Rd. Turn left about 3/4 of a mile past the light on Players Club Dr. (Star Pass Community). Follow this road untill the stop sign and turn left. The road will start a wide curve to the right, at this point you need to look for a dirt road on your right side to turn down. Once on the dirt road, stay on your right until you see a parking lot.
