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!

Path winds straight up to show a view of the city. The city view was nice but the hike up wasn't very exciting.

great view of the city during the day or after dark. great sunsets. paved path isn't in the best condition, lots of cracks and holes. can be very crowded at sundown. a couple of the switchbacks are pretty steep, but otherwise a moderate walk.

This is short but steep trail, it's paved all the way. Great workout!

This hike is amazing at night. you can see all the city light and hike. We saw a group of deer along the way. The incline is steep, but I was able to push a stroller with 3 kids up it since its all paved

Straight up hill. A little boring. Just okay.

Good after work hike for me! Nice basic challenge at the beginning and unexpectedly more challenging at the end. Slowly elevates, then great incline towards the end. Very crowded in the afternoon but plenty of room for everyone to enjoy.
