    Night Sky Viewing

    This park is far enough away from the lights of Tucson to provide a great place to view the night sky. Breathtaking. Walking or hiking is great here, too.

    Excellent Hiking Place

    We have been there several times. Various trails from easy to difficult. The trail to Romero Pools is a little long, but worth it!
