Description

This is the big dome of rock that towers over Leviathan when viewed from the Oracle Hwy.
You probably won't have to wait in line to get on this one.
Closed January 1-April 30 Details

Getting There

Drive to Catalina State Park on Oracle Road (Hwy. 77) just north of Tucson in Oro Valley.
After paying the entrance fee of $7.00 as of Jan. 2013, (self-pay if you've started as early as you should!), park at the parking lot for the Ruins Trail. Immediately after crossing the huge CDO wash, just before the trail heads uphill, there is a well used horse trail forking right. Take this trail as it climbs up onto a ridge that parallels the Ruins Trail ridge. It eventually heads right into Alamo Canyon. Right before it drops into the canyon there is a new trail that stays on the left side of Alamo for quite a long ways. It eventually drops into the canyon. Follow the canyon to the obvious side drainage that shoots up to the base of Leviathan.
Hike up to, then around the left (north) side of Leviathan Dome. The huge rock behind is Wilderness Dome.
Approach takes 3 to 4 hrs.
