We wanted to get good photographs of the sunset and the desert, so we drove around and found several places we liked. There were people there, but we managed to find a secluded spot.

They are adjacent. It is open desert, part of the national park, can't tell where one starts and one stops. Beautiful breathtaking scenery you won't find anywhere else.

The visitor center is stocked with educational exhibits and materials. It has a great jr ranger program! The hikes that fan out from there range from easy to hard, but most are easy-moderate and can be done in 1-2 hours. Take water! The views of the city from some points on the trails is worth a hike itself! These mountains get snow on them sometimes, but it does not last long.

To travel through Gates Pass with a stop at Tucson Mtn Park is not to be missed. The sunsets from this vista are spectacular!
