“Great vista”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

This is a great view of Tucson near downtown. Near sunrise and sunset are the best times but check to see if it is open.

“A great view.”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

We drove up to the park on "A" mountain, then walked up to the little stone shelter. What a great view, and so quiet. Worth the drive, hike, or bike ride. It is easy accessible by car. Then it is about 200-300 ft to the shelter.

“Easy, free, fun”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

We drove up, although many people walked. We took in the sights of the town, the A, and snapped a few photos. We spent 25 minutes there was just perfect little things to do after lunch!

“Great look at Tucson from above”
Reviewed December 18, 2011

There is a history where the A was originally painted by a university team after a win. Now it is painted red, white and blue all the time but didn't actually see it until we were on a highway. Great drive to the top on paved roads. Places to park and hike at different levels. Free to all. No services seen. Gazebo on one of top peaks which is not in top shape

“What a view!!!!”
Reviewed December 3, 2011

"A" mountain is great!! Perfect for a bike hike with a challenge to make it to the top, and when you get there you will be greeted by a great view of Tucson!! The sunsets are fantastic up there! A must see when you visit Tucson!!
