"A" Mountain, named after THE University of Arizona, is an awesome take when you consider all it takes is a little nerve and gas money. Very reachable from any part of the city, the 15 minute approach to the summit is more fun than your...More
Because Tuscon is in a bowl, flat land surrounded by somewhat towering mountains all around, the Sunsets are a wonder to behold.
Just per chance, we drove up the winding hill to see if we could experience a sunset up high. This was an amazing...More
The drive up and down the mountain is a one way road with a steep drop on your right side. The parking area opposite from the "A" does not hold many cars, so I picked a time after lunch, when there were only a few...More

Tumamoc hill is the hill next to "A" mountain and is one that is for pedestrians only. Since I cannot include a link, a search of Tumamoc hill in Tucson will get you instrctions on how to get to the entrance. You might also consider Picacho Peak. It is a short but fun hike with cables to pull yourself up the steeper parts, and the view is incredible.
