Spencer Canyon Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Santa Catalina Mountains are one of Arizona’s sky islands—isolated mountains rising thousands of feet above the surrounding sea of desert. They are moist, green havens for plants and animals unable to tolerate the searing heat below and now left stranded by millennia of climate change.

Biologists say the 28-mile drive from Tucson to the top of Mount Lemmon is, ecologically, like a trip from Mexico to Canada. Awaking to fog and mist at Spencer Canyon Campground, we certainly felt like we could be in Washington, until we realized we were just inside a cloud."
