This cool, high hike is a great way to spend a summer day away from Tucson’s heat. You’ll start just below the summit of Mount Lemmon and descend steeply almost 2,000 feet, past rock formations and through pine forests. The Wilderness of Rock is an area of mainly granite boulders and cliff s forming a wide band around the south side of the higher sections of Mount Lemmon. This loop enters the eastern part of the wilderness and exits via the popular Marshall Gulch saddle and up to the top of Mt. Lemmon Ski Valley, Tucson’s backyard ski area.
