Best Of Tucson®

Best Outdoor Recreation Store

Summit Hut

Thank the soul of Edward Abbey that there's a place like this in Tucson. While the powers that be want to continue to make retirement, home-construction and low-wage service-industry jobs the foundation of Tucson's economy, this ray of light serves as a reminder that we live in a recreation paradise that can help change how we value Tucson. Need info on good trails and spots nearby, or even far away? The folks at Summit can give you some info, and at the same time sell you a few things you might need to help you realize that the desert and its mountains are worth more than a new home development or retirement village. Remember that when REI comes, OK?
