NileGuide Expert Says:
Gates Pass is on the way to Tucson Mountain Park, Old Tucson Studios, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and Saguaro National Monument West, so you’re likely to see the pass whether you plan to or not.
- For a panoramic view of Tucson and its surrounding mountain ranges, drive uphill west on Speedway Boulevard, which turns into Gates Pass Road. Stop at Gates Pass, at the apex of the road, and enjoy the desert and mountain vistas from the parking lot at the side of the road, particularly at sunset. Be aware that this is a narrow winding road frequently used by bicyclists.
