    Directions to Trailhead

    The Bowen House is a long-abandoned stone home built in what now is Tucson Mountain Park. You can check out this relic of the past using Yetman Trail from Camino de Oeste, which is a 4.2 km hike that we rate as easy. This is a fun outing for families and we love a picnic stop at the house. There are also caves on the trail further on from the house should you want a bit more of an adventure. This route is lowkey and great for all skill levels. Bring lots of water on your hike.

    Route Description for Bowen House via Camino de Oeste

    Arizona is dotted with trails that lead you to interesting ruins and artifacts, and Bowen House is a long-abandoned stone home that sits in what’s now the Tucson Mountain Park. This hike is quite easy and enjoyable, and the house is fun to check out. This is a good hike for families and beginners and the house makes for a pleasant picnic spot.

    There are caves rumored to be further down the trail from the house, so adventurous hikers can go a bit further if they want to try and find them. As with all hikes in this area, bring lots of water and get an early start to avoid the heat of the day.

    From the end of the road, the trail heads directly south. You’ll follow Yetman Trail through a short canyon and then keep right at a split in the trail. You’ll round another hill through a broad canyon where the house can be found at the mouth of the next canyon. Stop here to explore, enjoy your sandwiches, and then turn around to retrace your steps.
