This sprawling park extends on both sides of Tucson, and the East Rincon Mountain District is the wilder part of the park, with 128 miles of hiking trails and mountain peaks that rise 8,000 feet into the sky. The park is gorgeous year round, but it’s best between November and March, when it’s cool enough to get out and explore the steep trails without collapsing from the heat. Your reward: eye-popping views of the colorful Sonoran Desert. The West Tuscon Mountain District (2700 Kinney Road N.) is best for gardeners, students of wildlife and families thanks to the wealth of educational exhibits at the Red Hills Visitor Center. Two easy guided trails, the Cactus Garden Trail and Javelina Wash, are perfect for learning about desert plants and animals in their natural setting. Down unpaved Bajada Loop Drive is the best access to the cactus forest. The fairly steep Signal Hill Petroglyphs Trail is worth the climb for the view from the top of the hill and a close-up encounter with 800-year-old rock carvings.
