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!

A nice trail. You get learn about the animals and history of the place. However it said it was also an archeological site as well. Where's the archeology stuff? Anyways, nice hike and I enjoyed the birds!

Beautiful views to look at during sunset & after it gets dark. First incline is tough but after that it's not so bad, if you're not in a rush.

For this 65 year old this trail got me breathing heavily. It took us 1.75 hours round trip. You must park along a street by a hospital. Busy trail on a week day. It is paved and steep.
