Driving to the top is not for the fainthearted but well worth it for the views at the top. Excellent walkways and lookouts at the top. Very interesting history of the location as well. The drive back down was significantly less nerve wracking! :)

Best place to get spectacular view of the city and the surrounding area. Best take a map if your not a local to pinpoint the landmarks.

Sentinel Peak is located in the middle of Tucson, just west of downtown and I-10. Also known as “A Mountain”, it offers views of all the mountain ranges surrounding Tucson, as well as downtown. The trip to the top and back down is about 2.5...More

A Mountain is a must see, especially for those new to Tucson. All 5 mountain ranges surrounding the city can be viewed, as well as the University of Arizona, Starr Pass resort, the Santa Cruz River and more. The views really give one a sense...More

Fantastic views of the city! Day and night! Also great for sunset, beautiful views all around. There's a gazebo that gives you great views. No toilets up there!!

Whenever I have out of town guests, this is one of the first places I take them. It's a great overview of Tucson and how it lays. It is a nice little ride to the top of the peak. You can stay in the car...More

Easy to drive or walk to with a great view of the city and surroundings. I like the lack of fencing. It could use just a little bit of cleanup.

You see it from afar then up close is impressive. Worth the drive up to see the view from there. Tough parking.

Literally! In central Tucson, named for the 30' high "A" for the University. Free! Short drive to summit, wonderful views of Tucson, environs.

Nice view, terrible mess. Does Tucson/Arizona not have parks maintenance anymore? May not even be a safe area. Nice view, nicer available.
