Alamo Springs Spur trail is located in the Tortolina Mountains, near the Ritz Carlton resort, North and east of Tucson.
The trail begins at the Wild Burro trailhead. You follow Wild Burro for a while and you will come to a trailhead and you will turn right. At this point the trail will start going up. It is rocky from this point on with switchbacks and stone staircases leading you up. Hiking sticks are a great help so bring them.
This is not a difficult trail if one takes their time. Great views as you climb.
The hike down is the same as the hike up. Rocky with stone staircases. Once you reach the wash it is a easy walk back to the trailhead.
