Rugged Mountain Views, view of city This is a great moderate hike, that captures great desert landscape and rugged mountain views. From the trail head, hike east up the obvious path towards Pusch Peak. The trail will lead you up and along a small canyon,l which will be on your left. This hike ends once you are at the base of a 250-300 foot peak. There is a small trail that will lead you to the top of this peak, if your ready for the up hill push! It makes for a great city view. You will notice a few side trails along the way, however if you stay on the east to west trail, you will be right on. Ample parking is available off Oracle and Linda Vista. The walk up the trail is easy to moderate, with lots of rock steps to climb over. The second half of the trail is downhill, with more rock steps. This is a good hike to do if you only have an hour or so. Plan to do this loop in the morning during the summertime. That way you will be in the shade of Pusch Ridge above. The trail offers beautiful views both up the trail, looking at Pusch Ridge, and down the trail, looking at Oro Valley. Lots of birds are seen throughout the area.

Good hike to get you warmed up and ready for longer and more difficult trails. Easy access for parking and identifying the trail.

Not particularly difficult, but a great place to get in a quick cardio work out. Close to Oro Valley and easy access to trail Head. We have hiked it a couple times our first week after arriving as it is a great training hike as we prepare to advance onto the harder routes. Very quiet and peaceful!

Wonderful vegetation and views. Ridge protects from sun until 9:30ish, so beautiful 'cloudy' lighting that makes everything look richer in hue
