This is Tucson's true downhill trail. A favorite of those looking for a multi shuttle day with easy road access and zero climbing. Its a great high elevation escape from the heat loaded with awesome tree lined singletrack. Throw in some slick roots and rock gardens leaving yourself the perfect ingredients for fun. Its nickname is Aspirin Draw.

*WARNING* Highly used multi-use trail with heavy hiker traffic on weekends.

Access Info

This trail is accessed from the Ski Run Rd. You enter in on the access rd for the ski lifts. Trail is marked just past the ski lifts on your left by maintenance shed.

 Today you can't access the Mt Lemmon trailhead (where Aspen Draw starts) by car. You can get to the ski lifts but not up the final mile or two which has ~600' elevation gain.

There is a gate right across the road.
