Wind through the Tucson Mountains on a dirt road off Picture Rocks Road West off Ina

Take Picture Roacks Road to Sandario.  About 1.5 miles south of Manville Road, take a left on Golden Gate Road...

Or Come north on Sandario Road from Aho...

The Signal Hill Trail is located in the Saguaro Mountain Park West.  The path is pretty easy, I think most could manage it with a little resting now and then.  The entire route is only 1/2 mile, with benches along the way.

Keep a sharp eye when walking!

President Roosevelt established the Civilian Conservation Corps to help youth find jobs during the depression.  Some of the CCC projects were the construction of picnic sites, ramadas, trails, bathrooms, dams - several of which are in the Tucson Mountain District.
