In about 5 miles the 1st stoplight you come to is Dove Mountain Blvd. Take left here and follow the road roughly 4 miles around the west end of the Tortolitas. Just past The Gallery is a small well-signed trailhead for Wild Burro Trail.

Event # 4: Hike Catalina State Park with Town of Oro Valley

Join us for a memorial hike in Catalina State Park as we remember and move BEYOND.

BEYOND is a community-wide outdoor event that occurs the first Saturday of every year. It was initiated by members of Gabe Zimmerman’s extended family to commemorate the anniversary of the Jan 8 shooting tragedy at Congresswoman Giffords' Congress on Your Corner.

BEYOND is dedicated to strengthening the health and well-being of our community by encouraging Arizonans to come together, get outside and be active on January 5th, the first Saturday of 2013.
