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

Did some hiking in this park while also staying at the RV park located within. The park has numerous trails. We visited in early February. The days were warm and the nights cool. Our trusty pooch was with us, and although it appears there are rules about taking a dog in the park (other than the campground) it was obvious... More

Did several hikes with my brother when he was in town. One of my favorites is the David Yetman Trail and the Stone House. Great area for hiking.

We have been staying in this area over the past 3-4 years. Tucson Mountain Park has great hiking trails of varying difficulty. They aren't always marked clearly, but they are beautiful! From the desert floor to the tops of a few of the peaks in the area - and although these trails are more or less in the city of... More

Great exploring close to Tucson. Not all the trails are marked so be prepared to be adventurous. Flowers are beginning to open. Birds here and there.
