Climb Mount Lemmon

October 05, 2022

It is an exciting route for drivers and passengers, the road winds skyward with hairpin turns constantly changing your perspective of the Santa Catalina Mountains. Watch the foliage change from cactus to evergreen trees as you climb to over 9,000 feet in elevation. The temperature will drop, too, possibly by as much as about 20 degrees! Before reaching the top, however, you’ll be able to pull off at scenic overlooks to see stunning rock structures and a panoramic view of our lovely city below. If you have time, stop for a sunset hike along the way. With well-marked trail heads at various points up the mountain, it’s easy to get out and enjoy the views, before returning to Westward Look for the night.
