Quick escape with optional climb to a mostly dry waterfall The Linda Vista Loop is really a network of trails offering four miles of great views of Oro Valley and an optional, very steep trek to a picturesque dry waterfall. If you want to get to the dry waterfall, there is an unmarked metal sign near the South Eastern-most portion of the network. Take the smaller rocky trail to the right. There is a bit of climbing on all fours up a bare, rough-surfaced rock face to get to the top of the dry falls. The rest of the trail network has some climbing, but it is extremely mild in comparison (in fact, it is rather fun).

Such beautiful views but the hike, while listed as hard, was not hard at all. This is a great hike for all ages.

Very steep with a lot of loose rocks and unsure footing, sometimes the trail is difficult to stay on as it blends in. Be prepared to put some work in, do not go on this hike if you don't want to get fatigued.

I like how close this trail is to where we live and there are decent views of Oro Valley. But it's a little rocky and too close to the cactus for the kids. I'd suggest Catalina park for an easy, fun hike for the kids.
