I've lived in Tucson over 20 years, and haven't been to Signal Hill until today. Perhaps because it was a little far from Oro Valley, or maybe because it's down a dirt road. Well, nothing to fear, and it was worth the effort to make...More

This is how you get to the top of Signal hill. Short ten minute hike up a well defined trail. This is off the loop road. Some picnic sites in the parking area. Was worth it to see first hand the petroglyphs on the top.

We hiked this roughly half mile long trail from the signal Hill parking lot. It was an easy hike, some stairs. Not wheelchair friendly. There were some larger steps. The view from the top was quite nice and there were some nice petroglyphs. It was...More

Great hike! We went with a few hikers(casual to experienced). Lots or great views as you wind around the mountain peak. The best views are when you get to the top of the mountain. You can see in most directions for miles! The petroglyphs are...More

These Petroglyphs are not easy to see, as many of them have been placed at the top of a rocky mound. Once you take the steep, but short climb, there are a few more, closer to the trail. I often wonder how much longer they...More

I preferred some of the other trails in the park, but this was great and short. It is a bit up and down, but not hard. The view at the end is sweeping, plus you have the ancient art on the rocks. Once you pay...More

I was excited to take this hike, because I have seen petroglyphs in New Mexico and I could walk right up to them to see them. The Signal Hill hike is a short hike to some petroglyphs, but you are not allowed to get close...More

At the top of Signal Hill Trail (not wheelchair accessible) are petroglyphs. It is worth the hike up, if you are interested in prehistoric drawings. The trail to the summit includes steep steps hewn out of rock, so you have to be reasonably fit to...More

We did this short walk to see the petroglyphs and were not disappointed. Hard to get to on dirt desert roads, but worth the effort. Good informational signage
