- Trip Toolbox
From South Tucson, take W Ajo Hwy (AKA Route 86) west for about 36 miles. Then take a left on Route 386 and head up to the top of Kitt Peak and the route's end point.
When you start you will drive through mostly desert until you come to Highway 386. Once on 386 and heading up to Kitt Peak you will see mountains, as you get closer to the top you will see a panoramic view of the valley below and views for many miles. At the top you can also see Kitt peak National Observatory.
Some construction for about 5 miles on Ajo but for the most part it is rolling hills through the desert.
Several gas stations on the way. 2 resturants also on the way. 3 points resturant in Robles Junction is very good.
