It looks like a group of us may be headed to Tucson around the end of February. We would love to spend our time finding the best caches that Tucson has to offer. Our favorite types of caches are the ones that take you to the coolest locations. So what have you got Tucson?! :)

Well...there is a broad range of caches for all types of cachers here. Some of the finest and most challenging hike-to caches are a short distance away. IMO, the best puzzles in AZ can be found about and in the Old Pueblo. And of course, the ubiquitous number-pumping urban micros are not lost out here.

 

Some good overall representative ones in Tucson I think are (in no particular order):

 

Petroglyphs and Rocks in Arraste Wash (GCJ5T7)

Evergreen's Stories (GCGAG3)

Bad Poetry (GCYE51)

Sand Trout (GCJTGA)

Buggy (GCHJ0A)

School of Rock (GCQ76D)

Pretty View Cache (GC5999)

Pontatoc View (GCHVFW)

Le Chiffre Indechiffrable (GCEA37)

Memento (GCHFMA)

Tumamoc Hill (GCB03F)

Padre a los Indios (GCMGGG)

Oni (GCVPHN)

Swords into Plowshares (GCGWJ4)

Giggles (GCHB6V)

Goes to Eleven (GCW8VW)

Penguins in Sonora (GCBFD5)

Wasson Peak (GCCCB2)

 

Looking forward to seeing you all out here.

I am in Avra Valley and I agree with the above.

I'd like to add a few to that list:

Old Man of the Mountain. It's a fairly easy hike, but a cool view.

 

Go Army, Beat Navy. A bit of a climb, but the view of the tucson area makes it worth it. When BwarRoo and I went for that one, I commented (from right atop the cache, ironically (further irony, I didn't find it, he did)) "I'll be happy even if this is a DNF" (If you do this one, be sure to hit Fossilized hat pins, it's really close)

 

Monkey-a-round. It's a super easy find. But it's a funny one. (and it's right on the way to Old Man of the Mountain)

 

Also, even though I've not found it myself yet (may have gotten the info wrong), Courage, Service, Country. It's a good excuse to visit the Korean War memorial.

 

sorry for not having the numbers for them.
