Kitt Peak Bike Climb

Kitt Peak is home to one of the world’s largest observatories. The 12-mile Kitt Peak bike climb is an out and back for a total of 24 miles.

Kit Peak is west of Tucson, Arizona and will challenge riders of all levels.

The 360 degree views at the top of this sacred Native American mountain are well worth the climb.

There are two options for this ride:

Option One: Drive out to Kitt Peak Road from Tucson and do the 24 mile bike ride.

Option Two: Ride From Tucson CLICK HERE

    Is there a safe place to park a car out at the intersection of AZ-86 and AZ-386 (Kitt Peak Rd.)? I’m interested in coming down from Phoenix to try this climb, but I wouldn’t have the time (or the fitness!) to make the 100-mile ride from Tucson to Kitt Peak and back.

      Yes there are some pullouts along side the road. Or even at the turn at 86 and 386.
