“Forget sunsets, go during the day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

I read how wonderful this is during sunrise and sunset but never seemed to be in the area then. Instead we stopped during the day and loved it!

The hikes up either mountain are exciting. It may be nothing for climbers, but it was difficult for regular hikers. The views are great!

Lots of places to get great view of sunset, as well as be able to walk back to parking lot in little light.

“Beautiful Drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

There are hundreds of pictures to snap along the way... especially with a good sunset! This is of course on the way to Old Tucson and to the Sonoran Desert Museum so you'll be able to enjoy this easily.

“Long and winding road”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

If you enjoy a drive to enjoy the scenery, you shouldn't skip Gates Pass. Winding and steep, the road provides breathtaking vistas around each corner.
