Tumamoc Hill reopens to hikers
Tumamoc Hill is a popular destination for southern Arizona hikers.

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - After closing more than two months ago because of COVID-19, Tumamoc Hill is officially back open to walkers, runners, and families.

Keep in mind, there are a few changes to be aware of before you lace up your hiking boots.

While Tumamoc is back open with its regular hours from 4 a.m. - 10 p.m.:

  • Visitors are required to wear face masks
  • Limit group sizes to three people
  • Use sanitizing stations placed along the path
  • Avoid touching the gate at the top of the hill
  • Maintain a 6-foot space between you and others

Something else to keep in mind, hikers are asked to give people over the age of 65, with pre-existing health conditions, preferential walking hours from 6-8 a.m.

Officials will be monitoring these changes.

If they think things are not completely safe, they will close the hill again.
