Highlights

  • Mount Lemmon is in the Santa Catalina Mountains located in the Coronado National Forest north of Tucson, Arizona.
  • At the peak of Mount Lemmon is an astronomical observatory.
  • Unfortunately for hikers, the Catalina Highway, also called the Mount Lemmon Highway, runs up the Santa Catalina Mountains from the east side of Tucson up to the summit.
  • A dirt access road to the summit on the "back side" of Mount Lemmon offers a secondary route to the top.
