Great hike with perfect city views This is a great hike up a well paved hill with fantastic city views. Since this hike is on university property it is one of the only hikes in the Tucson Mountain Range that permits night hiking, making this the perfect hike for sunrise/sunset watching. Tumamoc Hill is a research station that has been studied since 1906. Travel is permitted all the way to the top but on pavement only. With continued respect this route should remain open to the public!
Great little hike for getting out of the house, a good place to watch the sunset over Tucson.
Nice paved trail to do at sunset
A good workout trail!!!
I walk up Tumamoc anytime I need a break from studying and/or need to quickly get back in shape. After walking Tumamoc a few times in the same week, my resting heart rate drops and I can do the entire walk up without breathing breaks. Lingering at the top of the hill for a few minutes is the best reward. Bring a headlamp if you're going at sunset. Even though the road is paved, it has no lights, and there are poisonous things crawling across the path quite frequently.
This is a paved trail uphill. The view at the top is nice, but mostly when I do this trail it's for the workout as opposed to the scenic beauty of it.
This hike is the perfect workout. Steep but the city views are awesome.
had an opportunity to spot a wildcat. it was ALL hill.
Great views i hiked at sunrise.
Treadmill with a view
best hike ever
The path was paved the entire way which made for an easy walk but the elevation was a killer. Due to the elevation I wouldn't call this an easy hike. Most people on the path struggled to get up but everyone seemed to be jogging on the way down except me.
Wow, what a hill! I'd do it again!
I love this hill! ❤️
Heavy breathing but easy terrain.
A great trail to do if you're in town on a short visit. The trail is easily accessible, paved the entire way, beautiful views of Tucson and the surrounding mountains.
