Destination guide

Mt. Lemmon—the coolest mountain in Tucson

For the residents of Tucson, Mt. Lemmon is both a much-loved refuge and a magical playground. A place to retreat to when summer's baking oven gets too much. Or a place to have fun in, whether it's free-climbing white rock faces or slicing down the snow at the southernmost ski resort in the U.S.A. Visitors staying at one of the many Mt. Lemmon vacation rentals scattered on its slopes will find plenty of magic, too: bizarrely shaped hoodoos, awe inspiring star-camps, and breathtaking views from Tucson's very own "sky island."

Things to do

Drink in the stars atop Mt. Lemmon

Near the mountain's base—not far from many Mt. Lemmon cabins—is Sabino Creek. A short hike up this ravine rewards you with the cool clear waters of Hutch's Pool, a popular summer swimming spot. Mt. Lemmon's peak, by contrast, is known for astonishing views up into the sky, thanks to the extreme elevation and lack of light pollution. Kids will love the astronomy camps at the Mt. Lemon Observatory, awe-struck by stars that lie thick and silvery on a velvet backdrop. Away from the mountain, Rose Canyon Lake is worth a trip for its superb vistas and excellent trout fishing.


Mt. Lemmon—the pinnacle of adventure

Mt. Lemmon has adventure carved into its very bones. The drive up to its 9,100-foot pinnacle—along the gracefully looping "Sky Island Parkway"—is one big adventure in itself. Many heading up from their Mt. Lemmon vacation rentals have a hike or bike around the trails in mind, or just a family picnic. As well as providing spectacular views over Tucson, there are precariously perched hoodoo rock spires to admire while you munch. In summer, the more adventurous slap on the hand chalk, and clamber up rock faces. In winter, it's the pristine snow that calls to the adrenaline addicts.


Summer-time chiller & winter snow magnet in Mt. Lemmon

The spectacular height of Mt. Lemmon, just miles from Tucson, makes it a draw for the city-bound seeking a change of climes. In the summer, when Tucson swelters in 100°F heat, many book Mt. Lemmon vacation rentals for a chance to cool down. Temperatures up here are a kindly 20°F lower than down below. So, outdoor adventures can be had in comfort. Winter on the mountain is generous, too—180 inches of the white stuff most winters. This means Mt. Lemon can be a perfect winter break, too.

Natural features

Mt. Lemmon—the island in the sky

Mt. Lemmon is part of the wider range of soaring peaks that make up the Santa Catalina Mountains. These are famed for their natural beauty, as well as their landscapes that are refreshingly different from the desert plains below. Canyons, lakes, deep pools, and hoodoos make for a real visual treat. Mt. Lemmon is also a "sky island," hosting one of the few enclaves of sweet-smelling, pine-oak woodlands north of the Mexican border. Here, you might see big horn sheep and deer ambling, horny toad lizards skittering, or even black bears prowling.
