The museum isn't huge, but it's large and a more diverse portfolio of art than anticipated. A small but very nice mid-century modern gallery. Of course, the museum is driven by Southwestern art, but certainly not exclusively.

No matter your walking speed, this hill offers a good workout. It's about one mile yo the top and you are rewarded with an expansive view of Tucson. Many local hikers come here after work and are joined by visitors looking for views. Both are...More

Wanted to do a short hike and this was worth it. There were a couple of really steep hills but it was a good workout. Good view coming down. The paved path is in need of repair, and the portopotty was disgusting and the fountain...More

We managed to walk up half this walk and it was disappointing not to be able to drive as the halfway view was only so-so. The number of people walking to the top was amazing but it was way beyond our capabilities.

This is where the locals go to sweat while walking. It is short and steep with great views at the top. The beauty is that no cars or bikes, or dogs are allowed so you are alone with other walkers, joggers! Where exercise clothes and...More

Tumamoc Hill was a terrific find right near downtown Tucson. Best part is...it’s free! The Hill is just under an 800 foot assent in about a mile and a half, so it’s challenging as a walk, jolk, jog, or run...if you dare. The first very...More

This was a great thing to do: not at all a wilderness hike, but definitely worth doing to see the huge cross-section of people in Tucson that come out to do it. Fantastic interpretative signs along the trail and we even saw two mule deer!

The paved road, blocked from most vehicular traffic, is a nice little walk up to the top of the hill and offers some great views of the city.

Yes. Just don't park in the doctors office parking lot you could get towed if they are open. Great hike up with terrific views and this time of year might see the deers walking around.

I get 1.55 miles one way with a 730 foot elevation for 11.2% on average. It is maybe 15% for the last 1/2 mile. Women push baby strollers to the top.
