Take a hike Tucson – 5 of our favorite trails

Hiking in Tucson with TMC's employee FEAT groupAmy Ramsey, TMC’s employee wellness and engagement manager shares some favorite Tucson hikes.

Tucson is known for its outdoor activities, and hiking is one of the top things to do in and around our breathtaking city. Below is a list of our Top 5 places to hike in Tucson.

Sanctuary Cove: If you’re in search of some solitude, it’s worth finding! Our employee group used this location on Tucson’s west side to host outdoor yoga and labyrinth walking after our hike.

Santa Catalina Mountains: Visiting the sky island to the north is a must on your list of to-dos in Tucson. TMC has hosted a number of hikes beginning at Marshal Gulch, a beautifully wooded picnic area near Summerhaven and Mount Lemmon.

Pima Canyon: Gorgeous city and canyon views on this trail, with an easy-to-reach trailhead.

Sabino Canyon: Take the tram road up and choose which way you’ll go back. For a real challenge, try Blackette’s Ridge-one of the best views from the top!

Romero Pools: Located in Oro Valley’s Catalina State Park, it’s just one of the awesome trails available, and a favorite for TMC’s hiking group.

*Bonus! Tumamoc Hill: We just couldn’t leave this one off the list. A challenging yet doable paved hike on the west side of town, Tumamoc is one of our employees’ favorites. It offers great views of downtown at the top. While you’re there, make your way over to “A” Mountain, which is just next door!
