Tucson Mountain Park: Brown Mountain Loop Professional Review and Guide

"It is satisfying to hike over and around an outlying mountain of the Tucson Mountains. You get to summit a minor peak, enjoy great views, and see plenty of desert plants, with a bonus of spring flowers in March and April. Trail signs are adequate, but occasionally you need to use your route-finding skills.

The mountain was named for Cornelius Brown, first chairman of the Pima County Parks Commission. Th e commission was set up to oversee Tucson Mountain Park, which was established in April 1929. I describe this hike clockwise, starting from the Brown Mountain Picnic Area, beginning with the gentle climb and traverse of Brown Mountain and finishing with a valley walk. You can pick the trail up from near the Juan Santa Cruz Picnic Area as well."
