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!

Great little hike. Paved road all the way up. Took about 1.5 hrs up and down with stops to enjoy the views. Some quite steep sections to get the heart pumping. A local favorite and lots of people out enjoying this hike. I’ll definitely do it again. Probably a lot:)

Enjoyed great views of downtown Tucson and Catalinas and Rincons in the distance. That lady push to the top is quite steep

Absolutely amazing trail! Get a quick sweat in and exercise those thighs and calves. Fun trail now open to the public and locally for all of Tucson. Recommend hitting it in the morning hours and sitting at the top before the sun rises. Fantastic trail and super easy to break a good sweat on. The parking sucks at the bottom otherwise it's worth it at least once a month!

Walking Tumamoc Hill is my main vice and I hike it at least 5 times per week. Getting up there, I feel rewarded with the winds from the other side, the fresh side. Its spectacular views give me the most beautiful place to do a quick 5 minute meditation session.

Awesome incline workout! You will definitely sweat on the way up and the hike down is a nice cool down. Family friendly for sure!Beautiful view of the city.

Love that it’s quick and effective with gorgeous sunsets and easy access but it’s a paved road with tons of people

Great view, petroglyphs, wildlife, and a couple old observatories. Wonderful climb, paved and steep. Have done it with all the boys from 1 to 7
