Traveling to the Shrine
The Shrine is located at 8100 feet high above Tucson, Arizona in the Catalina Mountains. It's not just a Shrine, It's an experience with amazing 7 changes in biomes, vistas rock formations, and wildlife as you drive up the 25 mile scenic "Sky Island Scenic Byway". As you ascend the mountain you will find bathroom breaks at middle bear campgrounds (milepost 11.4) , Windy Point (halfway point), and Palisades (milepost 19.9). Once on top you can opt to stay overnight at the Mount Lemmon Hotel (and coming soon the Mount Lemmon Lodge) as well as enjoy the Ski Lodge, University of Arizona Sky Center, a variety of restaurants and of course our General Store. And of course, enjoy all the trails!
Enjoy your Journey!
We do have limited parking at the Shrine and there is parking on the street. However, Please don't park at the General Store as they restrict parking to their store.
