    Catalina State Park. This scenic desert park offers camping, hiking, picnicking, bicycling, horseback riding, plant and wildlife viewing, and an archaeological site, all just a few minutes from Tucson. Catalina State Park is located within Coronado National Forest, and is managed by Arizona State Parks in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service. The park encompasses 5,493 acres at elevations near 3,000 feet.

    CATALINA STATE PARK

    Catalina State Park is a wonderful place for hiking. It's north of Tucson off of Oracle Road about 12 miles north of downtown Tucson. There are camping facilities and miles of trails. Oracle State Park is just a bit to the north -two miles past the Biosphere. The trails are fairly simple but beautiful.

  • Desert Beauty

    by lightbulboy Written Jul 14, 2015

    This park is such a great symbol of the Arizona desert and all the beauty it has to offer. Being so close to the mountains brings the kind of piece of mind so often needed in the world, and the history on the Hohokam village preserves native survival really well. For those who haven't had the honor of stopping by the place, here's some more information on Catalina State Park . It's great for hikers.

    Another view in Catalina State Park. Other great places to hike are Sabino Canyon, Pima Canyon and Saguaro State Park in the Southeast area of Tucson.

    This is the view of the Catalina Mountains from my neighborhood. Finger Rock is in the upper right-hand corner.
