Picacho Peak Professional Review and Guide
"Although this hike is well northwest of the Tucson Mountains, it should not be missed. It follows the Hunter Trail to the top of Picacho Peak, the spectacular rocky summit adjacent to I-10 northwest of Tucson. Rising 1,500 vertical feet above the surrounding desert floor, 3,320-foot Picacho Peak is an isolated, 22-million-year-old volcanic mountain situated midway between the Gila River and Tucson. This is the site of Arizona’s only Civil War battle."
