Arthur Pack Regional Park offers a remote desert feel while staying pretty close to town. The park is named after Arthur Pack, an extremely successful businessman who fostered a great amount of nature conservation in the Southern Arizona area. The park is open dawn to 10 PM daily. Specific info is available at https://webcms.pima.gov/cms/One.aspx?pageId=1359
In addition to the baseball and soccer fields, playground, picnic ramadas and a golf course, Arthur Pack Regional Park offers a network of trails for hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians and trail runners. Used as a training and race course for the Mountain View High School cross country team, the 4.7 miles of trails offer gentle grades and a surprisingly remote feeling experience for a suburban park. Trails are well suited for beginning mountain bicyclists and hand cycles.
As always, all of our usual desert activity reminders remain in effect: wear a hat, Use sunscreen, wear good shoes, bring and drink lots of water.
Arthur Pack park is located only about 19 minutes south from Gladden Farms on I-10 East. Take Cortaro exit to Thornydale turn left (north) and watch for the sign on the left. Closer neighborhoods include Hardydale, Ironwood Acres, Overton Heights, Linda Vista Ridge and Northstar Estates.
