“Cochie, Wild Burro and Ruelas Canyons cut through the southwest end of the Tortolita Mountains, an unassuming but rugged range just a half-hour drive north of Tucson, Arizona. A trailhead at Dove Mountain, in the Town of Marana, leads northeast into Wild Burro Canyon, where it connects to trails that trace the crest above Cochie Canyon to the northwest or delve into neighboring terrain to the north and east.” (Marana – Hiking the Tortolita Mountains)
