Hugh Norris Trail

Bajada Loop Drive
Tucson, AZ 85701

This is the longest trail in the Tucson Mountain District. It begins off the Bajada Loop Drive, 2.5 miles north of the Red Hills Visitor Center. The trail was named after a former Chief of the Tohono O'odham Indian Police. The trail begins with a series of switchbacks that climb to a ridge overlooking the cactus forest. From there, the trail follows the ridge - top through areas with splendid views and unique rock formations until it reaches Amole Peak, approximately 4.1 miles from the trailhead. The next .8 miles goes up a final series of switchbacks and a gradual climb that leads to the top of Wasson Peak. Livestock are prohibited on this trail.
