Recently, Tucson, Arizona was rated one of the top bike friendly communities. All week, but especially on weekends, Old Spanish Trail is busy with bikers both because there is a bike lane all the way along it and because of the scenic Sonoran desert through which the road travels. Saguaro National Park East is just off the Trail, a large biking draw with its spectacular 9 mile loop paved road. Some of the hiking trails in the park can also used by mountain bikers. At the end of Old Spanish Trail is Colossal Cave State Park offering picnic sites, a cave tour, and horseback riding. Bed and Breakfast lodging accommodations can be found just off Spanish Trail for those wanting to enjoy the natural desert surroundings with easy access to the Trail.
