Hittin’ the Trails 4 You: Brown Mountain Trail

We’re hittin’ the trails today in the Tucson Mountains at the Brown Mountain Trail.


The trail starts at the Juan Santa Cruz picnic area. You can expect a well-maintained trail, which features several switchbacks.

This hike is a 4 mile round trip trek, and surprisingly its not very strenuous. It’s rated easy to moderate in skill level.

As a bonus, you will encounter spectacular saguaros and desert flora. Also, you’ll have great panoramic views of Tucson Mountain Park at the top.

Hikers say it’s a big payoff for not a lot of work.

A trail map and directions can be found here.
