This popular hike follows the main crest of the Tucson Mountains for an exceptionally scenic hike to the highest peak in the range. Named for a Tohono O’odham police chief, the Hugh Norris Trail starts from Bajada Loop Drive and climbs east up a small, unnamed canyon in the Tucson Mountains. A few switchbacks lead to a saddle, and after passing through another saddle, the trail climbs around the north side of a small peak.
