Take in the boundless skies and Arizona's dramatic landscape at Gates Pass. Just 11 km (7 mi) west of Tucson, the mountain pass is famous for its scenic byway, frequented by locals and tourists alike. The road offers numerous overlooks that provide panoramic views of the surrounding area and the city below. They're considered some of the best places to capture the sunset in the whole state. Bear in mind that the road through the pass is narrow, and whether you're driving or cycling over it, it's extremely important to take care to ensure the safety of yourself and others.
