I’ve done a few hikes around Tucson, taking advantage of the cooler winter months. It’s been difficult to find good information about some of the peaks so I thought I’d add some hiking information to this web site in the hope that people will find it through Web searches. For the most part I don’t include hikes that are popular as there are plenty of sources of information about them. For example, Mt Wrightson, Wilderness of Rocks, and Bug Spring are all popular and wonderful hikes for which you can find lots of information elsewhere.
My descriptions tend to be brief as I don’t think people generally need nearly as much information as some guidebooks provide. So here goes.
I have a separate page that lists scrambles around Tucson that you probably do specifically for the scrambling rather than because the scrambling is required to get to the top.
