Short drive from Tucson to the Mt. Lemmon Scenic Byway in the Catalina Mountains. Incredible views the whole roadway to the charming village of Summerhaven, going through multiple changes of environments like driving from Tucson to Canada in about an hour! Many activities possible such as hiking, camping, fishing, nature hiking, the Mt. Lemmon Sky Center Observatory, Ski Valley, art and music events in Summerhaven. Many places to park and take photos. Wonderful, wonderful new road. Great place to take visitors, especially in the summer when temps are 20-30 degrees cooler than the desert!
