Trail Overview

Redington Pass is a very popular two-lane road with lots of dispersed camping on the western slope overlooking Tucson. This pass varies in difficulty from deep ruts and washouts with many full washes. Most of the western side can be traversed in a low clearance 2wd with caution but it's not advised. Airing down is recommended if completing the whole pass. The most difficult portion of this trail is the water crossing in the east valley. It is soft and muddy and should only be tackled in a high clearance 4wd when full of water. The views of the surrounding mountains are incredible along this long meandering trail.

Western side for 12 miles had mild to medium ruts and numerous potholes. Slow going in some sections due to the surface conditions. Have seen less rough road surface in past years. Eastern 14 miles typical easy/3 road. Water in some low places but nothing deep. The eastern water crossing was dry.

This was an easy, fun trail. The trail was hard packed with some occasional icy puddle. We did not see the reported water crossing on the east side. We encountered a rabbit, some deer, and free roaming cattle. On the east side, we saw very tall saguaro cactus. The views of the Galiuro Mountains are very enjoyable.
