Mt. Graham International Observatory Tours

Starting mid May through October Discovery Park at Eastern Arizona College offers Mt. Graham International Observatory tours. The tours feature a 40 mile trip to the MGIO site near the summit of scenic Mt. Graham and focus on the mountain’s rich history, geology, and diversity of life. The cool mountain air and a delicious sack lunch at the U.S. Forest Service’s Columbine Visitor’s Center will energize you for the guided tour of the three Observatory facilities. The tour van leaves the campus at about 9:30 a.m. (must arrive by 9:00a.m.) and returns about 4:30 p.m. Lunch is included in the ticket price of $40 per person.
