Tumamoc Hill (or as we say "B Mtn", as in just behind "A Mtn") is a great hike, interesting terrain and you run the risk of seeing javelina, deer, lizards, quail and the occasional rattlesnake. Please follow the rules though, it's a Univ of Arizona...More

This is great place for free exercise. The hill is challenging in some places but well work the effort if you make it to the top. There are MANY people of all ages who walk/run the hill in the mornings, be prepared for poor parking...More

This place provides an excellent view of the area with a cement trail for ease of hiking. It's a bit of highway though in terms of hiking traffic due to this fact, but it feels safe to hike at night as a woman, and it's...More

A paved road all the way to the top, but don't let that lull you into thinking it will be easy. There is a 700 foot gain in elevation, and the angle of incline gets incredibly steep near the top. I guarantee your calf muscles...More

Halfway through the walk up this hill you'll be thinking "this isn't too tough" and that's a mistake. The last 25% of the walk is at a STEEP incline with many switchbacks. It's well-paved and maintained and wide enough for service vehicles to use for...More

Didn't realize how great of a workout this "hike" would be. I hesitate calling it a hike, as it's on a paved path, but the climb sure makes it feel like a hike. My heart rate was elevated shortly after we started. The only thing...More

The hill is only 1.5 miles on a paved road. Sounds easy, but the 300' elevation gain during the first half prepares you for the 400' elevation gain during the second half. Great 45 minute workout close to downtown.

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.
