To the Top of Picacho Peak

Picacho Peak State Park

1,500-foot peak

Hunter Trail, takes you to the top

It's about a four-mile-round-trip difficult and strenuous hike, but worth the effort. Round trip for someone not accustomed to mountain hiking is about 4 hours includes time spent on the top.

Steel cables and planks help hikers overcome the steepest parts, and the 360-degree view at the top of the surrounding desert and nearby mountains is well worth the effort.

Trailhead: From Tucson, follow I-10 north for about 50 miles to the Picacho Peak State Park exit. The trailhead is located at on southwest end of Barret Loop.

Gloves are useful for those cables
