This is just one segment of the Arizona Trail which is a 700 mile long trail running the length of the state.
The Pistol Hill Segment is usually ridden as an out-n-back from North to South starting at the Pistol Hill parking lot and turning around at the railroad tracks or as everyone calls them 3 Bridges. Is very nice mellow singletrack with a few technical sections thrown in here and there. There is also a very tough climb in what would be the middle before the turn around point.
Head East out of Tucson on 22nd Street, and hang a right on Old Spanish Trail just past Houghton. Follow this road for about 13-miles following the signs to Colossal Cave Park. About two-miles out from the Park, you’ll come to the Pistol Hill intersection which will be dirt on your left and paved on your right. Hang a left onto the well-graded dirt road and follow this about 1.5-miles. You will cross a cattle-guard and see the parking on the right with a large wooden signboard. The trailhead is about 20-yards back up the road past the cattle guard.
