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!

A brisk walk up to the top with great views of the city, not too taxing. Do watch out for snakes, one slithered across during the evening on my way up.

It was a nice hike to the top. It didn't take long and it was a little easier than I thought it would be.

great short hike. suitable for beginners not much of a work out for experienced people unless you run up. still a great view especially at night.

Great little incline to run up-- view was very pretty the whole way up. The whole trail is paved so I didn't even need my trail running shoes!

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.
