Mt Lemmon is a Tucson treasure. From just about anywhere in Tucson you can get to Mt Lemmon within an hour. The scenic drive up the mountain is one of our favorite things to do. An amazing drive and view anytime of year. Many pull-offs to stop and take it all in, or capture on film. The only downside is the bicycle traffic which can be heavy on some days. This is a very popular ride for cyclist and sometimes they ride in the middle of the road. This is a winding mountain road and can be dangerous if not respected and driven with care.
