We tried many of the trails over a 5 week period. They were free, not too difficult, and not busy. Got a little confused a few times but we're beginning to understand that that's just part of the learning process as far as hiking is concerned. Lots of beauty.

If you are going to Old Tucson and The Desert Museum, this is right between the two. Very reasonable price and nicely kept. You can't make reservations but doesn't seem too busy. When you get tired of all the polished and cramped RV resorts tis is a nice place to go.

We did a bird and nature walk with a guide from the Parks Department. Learned a lot and saw all kinds of desert plants, birds, and a few small animals. No snakes luckily.

Tucson Mountain Park and the entire Tucson Mountain area is as beautiful as any area in Tucson and it is so much less crowded. It is a secret place of beauty . . . until those of us that have found it tell too many people and it gets overrun.

Not much with facilities but on the way to Old Tucson and The Desert Museum. Cannot help to pass through coming and going. Nice hiking trails with plenty of pullovers for parking. Watch out for the Cholla....they hurt.

The park offers great views of Tucson and the mountains. But there's lots of trash and broken glass.

We stayed recently very near to Tucson Mountain Park and were able to take advantage of some of the great desert hiking available there. There were many great trails. It was amazing since on some trails we would not even see people, yet were adjacent to Tucson. I would highly recommend this park.

We went three times in 5 days. Hummingbirds are wonderful, docents are helpful and the vistas are wonderful.

While there are specified trails one can follow, they are often difficult to locate. It almost seems like this does not get the traffic the national park does and they have intentionally not over developed it. Many descriptive signs giving the history etc. of the area. Lots of parking. Have water with you, be alert for snakes. One could spend... More
