The David Yetman Trail passes through varied Sonoran Desert terrain at the southern end of the Tucson Mountains. The trail is in Tucson Mountain Park. This hike requires a car shuttle; you’ll need to drop a second vehicle at Yetman Trailhead (East). Starting from the west trailhead, the David Yetman Trail heads southeast toward a pass. At the pass, the Golden Gate Trail merges from the right; stay left and follow the Yetman Trail down to the flats at the base of Golden Gate Mountain. The trail was named for David Yetman, who served on the Pima County Board of Supervisors from 1977 to 1988. Yetman was a strong defender of the environment, and the trail was named to honor him after his retirement.
