Trail Description

This is a beginner’s trail located within Fantasy Island in southeast Tucson. It’s flat and there’s no technical challenges (only dodging the cacti), so it’s a great place to learn how to mountain bike, though some kids and adults new to the sport may be intimidated by the narrowness of the trail.

General Information and History

This trail is part of Fantasy Island in Tucson. Fantasy Island is an in-town mountain biking paradise, 18 + miles of mountain bike trail which twists and turns through only a few square miles of open desert.

The Bunny Loop Trail is one of the best beginner’s trails in Tucson. It’s well marked, easy to follow (GPS not required) and fun to ride.

The Trail

The trail starts off to the north (there’s a small “Enter” sign on the right hand trail). This like the other Fantasy Island trails are one way so you ride counterclockwise around the loop. Keep going either straight ahead or keeping left to stay on the Bunny Loop. There are some other trails and loops that intersect this trail.

At Waypoint 004, you will intersect the main Fantasy Island trail. At this point, just loop around and start heading south. You will see the signs for the Bunny Loop entrance from the main trail.

Keep on the main trail, again keeping left or going straight. At Waypoint 007, you’ll come to the corner of the AF base fence. Keep heading south. The trailhead isn’t far off.

Once you master this trail, you can start riding some of the other trails on Fantasy Island.

Have fun and be safe!
