Course Lasso-Loop Hike

Overview: This is a very simple little lasso loop from the common Wild Burro Trailhead, off of Dove Mountain Blvd. in the Tortolita Mountain trail system. Short and easy, it offers the perfect late day getaway or opportunity for a brief excursion into the desert mountains. The route finding is easy and the trails are all nice in here. An additional 0.5 mile round trip will bring you to the old line shack
