About the Park

Tucson Mountain Park was established April 11, 1928. The Pima County Parks Commission, with C. B. Brown as its chairman, was established to oversee the park. At approximately 20,000 acres, the park is the largest natural resource area owned and managed by a local government in the U.S. The park has approximately 62 miles of non-motorized shared-use trials. 

The park's trails are open to hikers, equestrians, and mountain bikers, and provide a wide range of outstanding experiences, including technical challenges, and breathtaking views. Gates Pass overlook includes interpretive displays and historic structures. Picnicking and wildlife viewing opportunities are located throughout the park.

Recreation Areas

There are three picnic areas within the park: Juan Santa Cruz, Ironwood, and Brown Mountain. Amenities available at the picnic areas are tables, ramadas, and grills.

Gates Pass Overlook is a popular observation location. It offers an excellent opportunity to view and photograph spectacular sunsets.
