A great view over city and desert- you can see sunset and moonrise at the same time!

“Beautiful Drive”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

There are hundreds of pictures to snap along the way... especially with a good sunset! This is of course on the way to Old Tucson and to the Sonoran Desert Museum so you'll be able to enjoy this easily.

“Long and winding road”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

If you enjoy a drive to enjoy the scenery, you shouldn't skip Gates Pass. Winding and steep, the road provides breathtaking vistas around each corner.
