Short trail with a scenic view. However it is labeled as dog friendly. This is not the case on the trail, there is broken beer bottle glass across the entire trail. DO NOT bring your dog!

I like to do A mountain in the evenings during the work week. It's a quick and easy way to keep your mountain legs on a low idle until the weekend. I really don't think this should be rated "moderate". It's paved, and while it's a little steep, it is not long. It's not really a trail. You just walk along the road. You have to watch for traffic, as a lot of people come up for the sunset. Many of them are more worried about strutting and posturing than watching the road, but the views of Tucson, especially when the season permits darkness before the 8 o'clock closing time, are pretty cool.
