Brown Mountain Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by John Maurizi

Ridge hike with great views of the Tucson Mountains! A perfect little hike at sunset.

I really enjoyed this hike. I recommend doing the hike as an out and back from the Kinney Road parking area. Also, the best time to hike is just before sunset. The hike is just over 4 miles total out and back with only about 500 feet of elevation gain. It has a climb at the beginning then rolls along a ridge with beautiful views of the Tucson Mountains.  Be prepared for the trail conditions. The trail is flanked sporadically with Jumping Cholla! This plant can definitely ruin your day. 

Directions: Head west on Speedway to Gates Pass. Turn right on Kinney Rd toward Gilbert Ray campground. The
trailhead is on the right with parking.

Nice Dog Friendly Hike

Nice & easy dog friendly hike close to Tucson. The signs in the parking lot say they close the gates at dusk.
