Tucson Mountain Park Reviews
Beautiful Outdoors Jan 24, 2010
The Tucson Mountain Park was designated a Park in the year 1928. At almost 20,000 acres Tucson Mountain Park is the largest natural resource area owned and managed by a local government in the United States. The park has almost 62 miles of non-motorized shared-use trials and the park's trails are open to hikers, equestrians, and mountain bikers, and provide a wide range of outstanding experiences, including technical challenges, and breathtaking views.
Gates Pass overlook includes interpretive displays and historic structures. Picnicking and wildlife viewing opportunities are located throughout the park. Dogs are not permitted in Tucson Mountain Park. Found within Tucson Mountain Park are attractions including Old Tucson Studios, Sonora Desert Museum, and the Sonora Anthropod Studies Institute?
We drove through the park headed to Old Tucson Studies located within the Park not too far from the Sonora Desert Museum, the views were indeed breathtaking and the winding roads adding awe to the experience. Along the way we found hikers, bikers and quite a few cars also headed to Old Tucson Studios and the Sonora Desert museum. The weather was perfect with white clouds in the sky, temperature below 90 degrees which I must say is great for Tucson given the three digit temps we have had all summer. We made a few stops on the way to take photos of the scenery and the cacti that dominate this park.
