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!

I've walked this mountain for years . It's an amazing walk. The incline is awesome, every time I have put weight on. I do this everyday and loose a ton of weight !

It is not a trail, but a road that is part of a nature preserve that the public can walk up on weekends. The view from the top is very nice, but it is hardly a nature experience.

Much steeper than it looks but there's a beautiful view at the top. I've seen lots of families hiking here. I would maybe do it again

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 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!

Great little hike for getting out of the house, a good place to watch the sunset over Tucson.
