I have both hiked and mountain biked in the Tucson Mountain Park. The trailhead is well marked and easy to find near the JW Marriott resort. It is a perfectly lovely place to hike but it really shines as a mountain biking destination. There are...More

Tucson is a bit sketchy but the MTB park is GREAT. Like mountain biking on mars though. Cactus everywhere!

Tucson Mountain isn't really very high. It's covered with saguaro cactus. One highlight of the Park is lots more cactus, including prickly pear and barrel cacti.

We took a ride through this mountain park. I can tell you it was worth it. Such beautiful scenery and a little different than what we had been seeing. The views from way up high were wonderful. We stopped and hiked a little, too. Gorgeous...More

There are multiple trailheads all over the park, and the trails are in good condition for biking, walking, and exploring. There are trails around some of the mountains, but none go directly to the top.

Great find! We toddled around here for a while, taking pictures and absorbing the beautiful surroundings. Can't get enough of the cacti! Close to Saguaro NP, Sonora Desert Museum, and Old Tucson, so plan on a stop over to check it out.

Ok. Pretty much the only way you know you are in the park is if you pass a sign on the road on your way in. If you hike and you may not see a sign at all. But when I recall the words of...More

We loved this park! Great camping for rigs of all sizes, and lots of tenters, too. The desert was lush with new growth after the October rains. Flowers were blooming in November, and everything was green. Only real amenity is flush toilets and 30 amp...More

The closest mountains north (NNW) of Robles Junction/Three Points, AZ are the Roskruge Mountains. It seems as though looking north from Robles Junction you would be looking at the very eastern stretch of the Roskruge... More
