Ascent Trip Reportthe mount lemmon highway has really nice views, and i'm tempted to come back to bag all the P300s in the area.
the mount lemmon summit is an eyesore with all the crap up there. the views are restricted by trees, buildings, antenna, power substation, etc.
there's a fence around the observatory area at the summit, but the high point seems to be outside the fence. there's an obvious use trail going counterclockwise around the fence (you could probably come up from the road below as well). a tiny scramble, and a few thorny bushes get in the way. but overall nothing difficult.
