Finger Rock Canyon Trail is a 8.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Tucson, AZ. The trail is rated as difficult and primarily used for hiking.
Great view from this saddle of downtown. Spent 45 mins at top. Make sure you keep hiking to the true summit that has awesome views of Oro Valley. Coworker said this hike would take 5hrs rt. Not sure how that is possible with breaks. Expect 7hrs rt.
great trail. excellent views. very difficult. 90% of the hike is scrambling over rocks as opposed to an actual trail. do not underestimate the difficulty of this trail. but, it's well worth the effort.
My favorite hike in Tucson, be sure to start early in the morning during summer time, to have some shade in the lower part of the canyon. Takes at least 2 hours up for the "pack light go fast" fraction, up to 5 hours for the casual hiker. At the top be sure to follow the Pima Canyon trail at the saddle, and at the Mt Kimball sign go uphills and follow the path until you reach a rocky outpost with magnificent views. Takes almost as long down as up due to the rocky and slippery surface. And if you come back like I did around noon, be sure to have sun protection and lots to drink for the way down.
Great hike. The first mile is relatively easy but as you turn up west face of the mountain it gets steep. The views of Tucson are amazing.
This is truly a fun way to spend the day
Bring water&afoot and plan on being tired at the end
Moderate to difficult trail. Can't actually climb to the "finger" bummed about that.
Fun small trail, very technical Be sure to take the Pima trail crossing at the top to get to Mt Kimball summit. not marked very well.
Fun! Just a bit over 2.5 up, was told there was not a turn-around point, so stopped at 40min and turned around. I will go back with more time.
Wow is all I can say. What a trail!! Rated difficult for a reason.
Got 3 miles and to the overlook... What a view.
If your afraid of heights or walking on a small path next to drop offs, this might not be your first choice....
This trail is definitely not for the weak minded. It was challenging the whole way up but definitely worth the view. Absolutely gorgeous. The only downside is that finger rock is much further than described in this map. We hiked up 4 miles and were no where near it. Definitely closer to a 10-12 miles hike round trip. I look forward to trying again soon!
Amazing hike! Got a bit lost due to the unmentioned forks. Can't wait to go back and explore the other parts of the trail.
Great challenge! Difficult to follow the trail at times. Bring lots of water and walking sticks.
