It's easy and quick to locate as it is just about 5 minutes from downtown, and offers really cool views of the city and surrounding area. Definitely worth checking out if you are here for any more than a couple days.

Anyone who lives in Tucson can tell you about the drive up to A Mountain. I have gone again and again. My grandchildren love it, as do I.

Driving to the top is not for the fainthearted but well worth it for the views at the top. Excellent walkways and lookouts at the top. Very interesting history of the location as well. The drive back down was significantly less nerve wracking! :)

Best place to get spectacular view of the city and the surrounding area. Best take a map if your not a local to pinpoint the landmarks.

Whenever I have out of town guests, this is one of the first places I take them. It's a great overview of Tucson and how it lays. It is a nice little ride to the top of the peak. You can stay in the car...More

Easy to drive or walk to with a great view of the city and surroundings. I like the lack of fencing. It could use just a little bit of cleanup.

Easy. It may be windy but that doesn't impede your driving. The view is worth it.
