Lots of glitter scattered throughout the ground!

The area was beautiful, but I wish I would have known how rocky the trail is!

Great summertime hike on top of Mount Lemmon. Nice views and chilly water - it felt great to dip our toes in! Check out my full review on my blog: https://tryniakaufman.com/2016/07/03/wilderness-of-rocks-freeing-the-pieces-of-ourselves-to-come-alive/

It was the greatest hike ever

Fantastic hike. Fulfilling length and elevation change, but doesn't take the whole day. Plenty of shady spots and a little running water. Best of all, it's cool enough to do in the middle of summer.

Good time!!

Such an awesome trail. Check weather before setting out. Some parts of the trail have no shade what-so-ever and can be grueling. Worth it, though!

Beautiful, wild country minutes from Tucson.

Beautiful Trail on the way up.

Mt Lemmon was our family's escape from the city of Tucson! We lived there for 6 years and at least once a month if not more took the trip up the mountain! I loved it because you started going up through saguaros, and all of sudden you go around a corner and you are in a forest of pines! Loved feeling the mountain air after being in the summers of AZ. It averages about a 20 degree difference once you reach the mountain town on the top. There is a great gorge in the back to take a hike where hardly anyone goes! Easy enough for my toddlers to walk along with a little help. I will miss Mt Lemmon for sure! This is also where my husband proposed to me, and where we had our first kiss! Mt Lemmon holds a very special place in my heart.

All the Mt Lemmon trails are great - especially when you need some cooler air
