Map Drive

To Gates Pass Trailhead
-10 East to Tucson; turn onto Speedway Blvd going West away from Tucson; at the intersection of Speedway Blvd. and N. Camino De Oeste, Speedway Blvd becomes West Gates Pass Road, continue on this road toward Saguaro National Park. To your right you will see the International Wildlife Museum with a big statue of a lion out front, continue on West Gates Pass Road and the road will start get very windy and the speed limit goes to 25 mph yet paved. Continue past the first parking area to the right, the road will start descending and wind sharply left. The 2nd parking area is to the left after starting the descent and sharp turn. This 2nd parking area is less developed with no restrooms or water available. The first parking area is situated in between some very steep hills on both sides and has water and restrooms with many parking spaces so if you need water and a break you should stop here. At the 2nd parking area a trail head is visible and goes straight up toward some little peaks in the area. You will reach a fork in the trails with signs marking Gate's Pass and other trails. You have a choice either to continue around the circumference of the peaks or heading straight up to the peaks if desired.
