Looks to me like Mt. Wrightson and Santa Rita range are about the tallest in Tucson area. I'm dieing to get into the tallest mountains I can find in southern AZ. I can't hike, due to old horse training injury, so want to know if you can drive up Mt. Wrightson. Is there a place you can rent a jeep or ATV to do it? I can hardly wait!

I'm not sure you can drive up Mt. Wrightson. Somebody else may be able to answer that better. You might want to check out Mt. Graham though.

You are correct. You have to take a tour bus to the observatory on Mt. Wrightson. The road to the top is too narrow to allow other traffic. You can drive up to the top of Mt. Graham. I have been to the observatory on Mt. Graham. It is an interesting tour.

Mt. Lemmon is the high-altitude attraction in the immediate Tucson area. You can drive there.

Can you still ride??

That would be much more fun - but never go up the Santa Rita trails by yourself.

There is a tour bus that will take you to the top. No cars are allowed to drive the road because it is a narrow one lane road.

Thanks for advice, all of you. I didn't get to go when I wanted to, but am still going to. I can only ride a horse about half an hour, but ATV or motorcycle is okay for several hours. I rode an ATV up the tallest mountain in West Virginia last year.
