The park in includes over 5,500 acres of foothills and canyons within the Santa Catalina Mountains. There are miles of hiking, biking, birding and equestrian trails in the park and into the Coronado National Forest. Other outdoor activities include picnicking, photography, stargazing and wildlife viewing.

Park Trails
The Romero Ruin Interpretive Trail also meanders through the ruins of a prehistoric Hohokam village site. There’s also a mile long nature trail which offers great views of the Sonoran Desert and Santa Catalina Mountains. The Romero Canyon Trail (7.2 mi.) and the Sutherland Trail (10.5 mi.) offer longer, more strenuous hikes through beautiful desert terrain and riparian canyons. Both climb to cool natural pools and connect with other Coronado National Forest trails which continue on to Mount Lemmon at the top of the Catalina Mountains.

Equestrian camping is also available for visitors who trailer their own horses to the park.  Eight pens are available (first-come, first-served).  The equestrian camping area has tables, grills, flush toilets and drinking water.
