A great place to explore when the weather is nice. Miles of trails to explore. Keep an eye out for reptiles, because they are all over. Great place to take photos when the wildflowers and cactus are in bloom. Make sure to give the bicycle riders some room on the narrow roads through the park.

You must have water, a hat, sunglasses and good hiking shoes. the trail is flat but very rocky. Take a camera for the sites along the way. chipmunks, wonderful Saquaro that you can touch. Jumping Chola got into my leg. Some people mountain bike it but be careful.

Tucson Mountain Park is spectacular from the road because of the dramatic terrain and the huge number of cacti, but because it's a public park without any gates or fees, it also has quite a lot of graffiti, broken glass, and other signs of misuse. It's worth a visit, particularly if you're on your way to or from the Desert Museum or the west side of Saguaro National Park, but for a more pleasant experience I recommend Sabino Canyon (which unfortunately could not be farther away and still be in Tucson).

Lots of easy to follow trails within the park. Best to hike early in the day as it's less crowded and cool!

We enjoyed a three mile loop up the King Canyon Trail and back through the dry gulch. In the gulch you can see ancient petroglyphs just below the old dam on the high rock walls. This is also a good walk for viewing the Sagauro cactus and some birds. The people at the camp ground provided a good map and advice on trails. Many other hikes looked interesting.
