If you’re looking for a great place to train for hills or just like a good challenge, check out the 3-mile up-and-back paved road on Tumamoc Hill. At it’s steepest point, Tumamoc has a 14% to 15% incline, which provides a great cardio workout! The other reward for making it to the top is one of the best views in Tucson of the city and beyond.
It’s 1.5 paved miles to the top of Tumamoc Hill. If you’re doing an early morning or evening run, you’ll want to bring a headlight with you. There are port-a-potties half way up.
