Dove Mountain is a resort community north of Tucson, in the foothills of the Tortolita Mountains. Elevations from 2,700 to 4,300 feet. There are over 60 miles of hiking and biking trails in Dove Mountain and the surrounding Preserves, many with trailheads suitable for stargazing. “The county and city are in the Dark Skies Project so no streetlights and limited residential lighting. The only commercial property is the Ritz Carlton, which is secluded with limited lighting. There is U.S. Forest Service land nearby at the Tortolita Mts so lots of undeveloped, open space.”
