TUCSON, Ariz. — There’s a lot more than meets the eye in this beautiful place -- and people who frequent it know how much there truly is to do. It’s like nature’s playground, offering hiking, mountain biking, climbing and fresh weather. In just half an hour of a drive, you truly feel like you’ve gotten away.

- Create your own experience at Sabino Canyon
- Soaking up the beauty at the Botanical Gardens

Others, like Ryan, also known as ‘Steady Eddy,’ are just passing through. He’s tackling the entire 800 mile Arizona Trail southbound, a trek that takes grit and persistence. Packing as little as possible, Ryan takes every chance to restock his water supply.

Once you’ve had your fun for the day and the sun goes down, you have a front row seat to the cosmos. The gorgeous views, the mountain activities… as well as the interesting people… make Mount Lemmon a true source of Arizona Adventures.
