“The Wild West”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Beautiful sites and a "real western" experience. Take water. Wear closed toe shoes. Trails are many but signs are few. Don't be afraid to pull over to let faster cars go by.

“Nature next to the city”

We live next to Tucson Mountian park and we see all sorts of wildlife, And there are some great trails for Hiking, Mountian Bikes and Horses. The one problem is the county dose not have a good map.

“Sweet little trails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

These trails are fairly easy in comparison to most Tucson trails. Great way to experience the Sonoran desert. We've seen coyotes, jack rabbits, deer, cardinals, lizards, and this last time a tiger rattle snake.

As always, take water, snack, first aid kit, walking sticks (for those with bad knees), hat and sensible shoes. The trails WERE well marked but unfortunately the signs have been vandalized (why?). Be sure to use maps, gps or have a local guide. The mountains are in an urban setting, but a wrong turn could be a two to five mile mistake.

“Great Hiking and Nature Watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

A great area to get some hiking and nature watching in. There are several trails that can take you clear across to Gate's Pass. The wildlife is so diverse and plentiful in this area. I have seen mule deer, javalina, lynx, gila monsters, and lots of coyote and bunnies.

“Gilbert Ray – Desert camping at it’s best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

We drove here via the Gates Pass… which is a truly spectacular road with some awesome views. What a awesome desert campground. We like to relax in the desert and soak up the sun. You can also hike up Brown Mountain for a 360 degree view of the surrounding area. Hiking up the King Canyon – a dried watershed… you have some great rock formations, but also some petroglyphs from the Hohokam Indian to discover, up on the Sendero Esperanza Trail we found some old stone cabins to explore and a great view down in the valley, which we went all the way down. Convenient place to stay for trips to Old Tucson and the Sonora Desert Museum. Both worth a visit.
