Did this hike after hiking Wasson Peak. It's more of a party mountain for sure due to its background but it does provide a great view of downtown as most other mountains tend to be too far away or of the sort to provide a nice view of downtown.
Hiked this peak with my hubby and parents on my birthday! The day cleared up nicely with a bright blue sky. Too much trash, especially broken glass, on the summit, though. Grafitti all over the summit, too. Still, we enjoyed the views of Tucson plus surrounding mountains. Also, what a joy to have a nice little summit so close to town.
Route Climbed: Sentinel Peak Trail Date Climbed: February 15 and 16, 2005
My science teacher/mountain climber Michael Heald, a close family friend Steve Seay, and my friends Jeff Perkins, Erik Shoener, and Blake Montgomery climbed this mountain two mornings to watch the sunrise while in Tucson for the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show. Small peak, but very conveniant and a great short hike to stretch your legs out. Great panoramic views of Tucson and the surrounding areas, and the sunrise hits the mountains with incredible beauty. We also climbed down on the painted "A". Great short 1 hour hike.
