Driving up Mt Lemmon is definitely worth the time. Stop at the many overlooks for some fabulous views of Tucson. Plus it gets delightfully cooler the higher you go!

I live near Mt. Lemmon and I still can't believe that within 15 minutes I am out of the heat of Tucson. It is like another world with all the trees. Good trails to hike and even camping. Even has snow in the winter.

Fascinating to see the cacti disappear at 5000 feet and the conifers appear so suddenly. Took the trip to the mountain on a last minute whim during a one week vacation in Tucson - deeply regretted not scheduling more time to explore it. Felt like I was back in the PNW once we got to the top!

This goes for miles and reaches really high elevations. The scenery is amazing and you have several drive up stops to take photos. You must stop at these to get the best view and photos. A must do while in Tuscon

Some of my families most special memories are of days spent on Mt Lemmon. There is something for everyone up there but just the time spent riding up and down the mountain is refreshing, scenic and good for the soul!
