This is a very short trail near Mt Lemmon SkyCenter. It's a short trail, but enjoy the views.

Nice short trail, not too demanding, but the upward slope back to the parking lot will get your heart beating faster. We hiked on a cloudy, misty day so views were obscured, but we enjoyed the hike anyway. Turn this into a loop hike by returning on Mount Lemmon Trail #5, and also take in the short side trail to the Lemmon Rock lookout tower on the way back, one of the oldest fire lookout towers in the nation.

A nice quiet trail. My 5 year-old and I were able to hike this and get some nice views southward of the city and the mountain below us. A really nice trail when the weather gets warm down in town.

This short trail runs next the observatory for the first 200 yards, it's fenced off but still exciting to see. This is about as close to the summit as you can get. There is also a nice camping area about 1/4 mile into the trail with a couple fire pits.
