Pontatoc Ridge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This trail aff ords excellent views of Tucson and its surrounding mountains from diff erent angles—bring a city map and binoculars to pick out the streets and landmarks.

Looking away from Tucson, you’ll have superb vistas of Finger Rock (see Hike 19, page 147) and Pontatoc Canyon in the front ranges of the Santa Catalina Mountains. The hike ends at an old mine that gives the trail its name."
