Mt. Lemmon offers a nice respite from the desert heat or grab a quick lunch or hot drink during the winter. It's a great place to hike or just stroll through the town of Summerhaven.

I am a Colorado native and was unimpressed. That said it is a cute place. The trees are tall and there are great hiking trails and picnic spots. There are a few small shops and a place whee you can get a huge baked cookie...More

Both long and short hiking trails with public restrooms. food, and gift shops. The whole family can enjoy this trip with scenic look outs along the way up and down the mountain. Camping sites are also available.

The road up Mount Lemmon is always an interesting drive with lots of views on the way and exciting stops. Scenic rock formations and picturesque valleys along the way are always different depending on what time of the year you go or with the weather....More

Mt. Lemmon is only an hour from most places in Tucson and 20-30 degrees cooler. The mountain has several restaurants, lot of picnic areas and a plethora of hiking trails. You can even ride the ski lift!

Right now, there is a wild fire burning on Mount Lemmon, but otherwise, it is a cool, refreshing trip from hot Tucson. Looking forward to going to one of my favorite places.

We visit Mt. Lemmon at least 4-5 times per year. The weather is much cooler than in Tucson and there are many hiking trails in addition to Rose Canyon Lake. I highly recommend visiting there!

The drive is beautiful but one you get to Mt Lemmon there are few choices and not so good food. I don't need to return.

Great views and a fantastic ride up to Ski Valley, pull over at some of the stops and take it all in. It was 116 in town and by the time we got to the top the temp was 82 and beautiful.
