This is a fabulous park in which you can view the desert & mountains. Anytime of day the scenery is spectacular. Best to take photo's on a sunny day. You have to drive through this park to get to Old Tucson or Arizona Desert Museum. There are many hiking trails.

Took a leisurely drive through the park. Wonderful scenery and interesting flora and fauna. Several excellent spots to pull over and enjoy the sights. Would be a nice bike trip for the more adventurous and athletically inclined.

We visited the park twice on our last vacation. The first time was driving and the second was hiking. The scenery is breathtaking. The trails are well maintained. If you are ever in Tucson it is worth the drive to go visit the mountain park!

For anyone who could doubt the beauty of the desert. This will make you a believer. So easy to pull off the road in this beautiful spot and take a deep breath. Stop and smell the ocotillo!

If the weather is nice, and it most often is, the dive provides dome breathtaking vistas. There are many types of cactus to see and it's even better when in bloom. Tke one of the many turnouts and savor the Southwest views for a while, especially later in the day. You may be treated to a stunning sunset filtered by... More

Many nice trails to hike. Great opportunity to see native Arizona plants. We went in January and the weather was just perfect for strolling through the desert.

Hiked for a couple of hours and enjoyed the views and scenery. Watch out for the little cacti on the trails because if you accidentally step on one it will raise up to embed itself on your shoe after making several holes in your foot. The trails are not well marked and unfortunately there is a good bit of litter... More

This park is beautiful. We stayed 2 nights in the rv campground. The scenery was beautiful and the campground was quiet and relaxing. And right down the road from Old Tuscon. Will for sure come back again.

I went to this park on a whim for a day trip while visiting Tucson. Lucky me! The views were amazing and the drive through the park is beautiful. There are plenty of places to hike, take photos, explore and just enjoy the lovely weather.
