“A must see stop for visitors and locals alike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Only Tucson can offer such a spectacular desert view--especially at sunset! Beautiful spot! The mountains and desert are a timeless treasure!

“What A View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Lots of people stake out to take pictures. There are several spots to pull off but the main one gets full at sunset.

“The place to be for sunset viewing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This is probably the best spot to watch sunset or the stars! This site overlooks the valley, you can see for more than 100 miles in front of you.
You have to go!

“The Desert at it's Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

My favorite Tucson Attraction. We always drive through Gates Pass at least twice on every visit. The plant life is simply wonderful and the surrounding mountains are beautiful.
