I posted a review on the mount Lemmon scenic byway and I can't say enough about the beauty of taking the time to drive up to the top. It's a breathtaking drive the entire way with countless opportunities for award winning photos. If there's snow on top Rush up to enjoy the beauty!

It is amazing that the drive starts in the desert and ends in the Mountain with pine trees and snow. Just beautiful. Loved it, sadly picked a day with the ski resort being closed and no freshly fallen snow, but a great drive nonetheless

We visited Mount Lemmon on our road trip an found it awesome. The drive up takes about two hours and some care is needed as there are some switch-back turns on this road although it was reasonably quiet in October.

Who would have thought that just outside Tucson in the Sonoran Desert, Mount Lemmon would offer relief from the heat in the summer and the southern-most ski area in the US for recreational skiing in the winter? Go for a picnic or go for a hike. The scenery is spectacular.

We live here and never get tired of going up the mountain, especially when it's hot down below. Only takes about hour to get to top. Beautiful drive up with different change of scenery around very corner. Starts with desert at bottom and finishes with pine trees at top. Good places to eat. Try the Iron Door at Ski Valley,...

It took about a hour to get to the top. I stopped at every pull away parking to take picturea. It was beautiful. There are restaurants on top. It was about 70° up top. Nice, cool and windy.

I am so glad i visited Mount Lemmon. I would recommend this place as a must visit attraction in Tucson. Advisable to arrive early to get the best view of before and after sunset.

We had the most enjoyable afternoon and evening. Had cookie and ice cream at the Cookie Cabin and visited family at their campsite.

I love the trips I have taken Mt Lemmon. It's cool in summer, crisp in the fall and cold in the winter. Going up early in the morning and cooking breakfast, priceless.
