The Dan Yersavich Memorial Bikeway closely follows Old Spanish Trail, a road that connects residential areas of Tucson with Saguaro National Park, for its entire route. Compared to some of the other wide, well-maintained trails in the area, this path may be a bit of a disappointment, but it is still an incredibly useful route for locals and visitors alike.
The trail ends at the visitor center for Saguaro National Park's Rincon Mountain District. Be sure to visit the center, which is open year-round (except Christmas day), to view a selection of resources, and consider taking the self-guided walk just outside to learn about local flora. Mountain biking and hiking trails are also available within the park.
Parking for the Dan Yersavich Memorial Bikeway is available at the visitor center for Saguaro National Park's Rincon Mountain District (3693 S. Old Spanish Road) in Tucson.
We started at National Park parking lot and rode down hill to just about the end of the trail. Trail surface is old and very rough with plenty of linear cracking. After mile 1.6 the surface improved for a distance. Several major street crossings are encounter with signals for when to cross. We turned around when the trail narrowed down to an elevated concrete path just a couple feet wide. The trail is adjacent to Old Spanish Trail road which is wide with bike lanes on both sides of it. The surface is smooth. We saw a number of road bike folks in the bike lanes, none on the trail. Think I would vote to remove this one from Trail Link’s list of trails. Plenty more in Tucson of much better quality.
