Today’s question is: Besides Madera Canyon, where are the best walking and hiking trails near Green Valley?
Using data collected from Pima County Natural Resources Parks and Recreation, the U.S. Forest Service, and All Trails, I created a map that shows 20 hiking trails around Green Valley and Sahuarita (Yes, Madera Canyon is represented as well for those who are interested.)
You can zoom in on the area and look at specific locations (locations aren't always exact), and click into each trail to see more information about the features and amenities.
The trails are marked by color based on difficulty. The trails marked in green are easy, the trails marked in yellow are moderate, the trails marked in red are difficult, and the trails marked in black are undetermined.
Some of the markers have trail websites attached to the them that provide more information.
A few trails require permits, so always double check with local agencies before heading out.
