Amazing Sunsets at Gates Pass

Spectacular sunsetsets with vivid orange and yellows dance across the sky as the sun slowly sets each night at Gates Pass. There is no other vantage point, other than Mount Lemmon, to see such a brilliant sunset.

See Gates Pass photos by Tucson photographer Chad Might.

To get the best sitting spot, it is advised to park no later than an hour before the sunset. Parking spots at Gates Pass are limited and fill up fast. Parking is not allowed on the sides of the main road.

Once parked, take a short hike along the dirt path towards the sunset. Be courteous to others who have already made their perch.

Dozens of people gather to watch the sunset everyday. It gets very crowded on Friday and Saturday nights.
