We visited this park in mid-March, just as Spring seemed to be coming into bloom. Originally, we were just going for a site-seeing drive from Kinney Rd road to W Gates Pass but we ended up finding the David Yetman Trail for about four miles there and back.
Despite the small puppy in our photos on Where Is Waypoint (below), this is NOT a dog friendly park. Dogs are not allowed. However, we didn’t know that until we visited the park office later. That said, the trail was quite nice with decent elevation gain and a few gorgeous views of Tucson.

Great drive over Gates Pass. Not recommended for big trucks or of you're pulling a RV, as the road is narrow and quite crooked. There is a pullout at the top of the pass that offers great views both east and west. East side ends as it merges with Speedway; west end terminates on Kinney just north of Old Tucson.
