Tucson is a hiker’s paradise, I’ve said it time and time again. Whenever someone asks me what there is to do in Tucson I always say the same three things: eating, hiking, and exploring the beautiful University of Arizona campus! One of my favorite hikes in Tucson is definitely Tanque Verde Falls. It’s a great workout, the views are beautiful, and it’s not overly crowded. Check out 8 of my favorite photos to inspire you to hike Tanque Verde Falls in Tucson!
Tanque Verde Falls is 1.8 miles long and rated as moderate, so it’s a great hike to go on if you want a workout but you don’t have a lot of time.
It is a dog friendly hike but just make sure you have your dogs on a leash.
This hike is about a 35 minute drive from the University of Arizona so it is perfect for college students or friends/family who are visiting Tucson.
There is running water at the end of the hike so make sure to bring a swimsuit or at least hiking shoes that are water-friendly!
I love that it was not crowded at all and there is so much diversity in the terrain.
So did it work? Are you already adding Tanque Verde Falls to your hiking bucket list?! I hope you are ?
