Love this trail. It's a really easy hike for people which doing hikes quite often. The sun makes is harder though, but only because you have to drink more then usual. My boyfriend and I each needed 2l of water that day. It was hot (102degrees) and dry that day in October 2016. The trail wasn't easy to find at the beginning but when it's coming closer to the waterfall it's really easy. The waterfall itself is so beautiful - we were also swimming at the waterhole. I definitely going to hike this one again!!
Very easy and enjoyable hike. Benches to stop and just take in the beautiful scenery. It's hard to believe the road is so close because all you hear are the birds and the breeze. Will definitely go back for a quick and easy walk in a beautiful setting.
We loved this trail! Took about 4 hours to/from Visitors Center. Took a break and took of my shoes... Only to find a squirrel sitting in one of them! Moderate trail. We had no crowds whatsoever. Went on a Wednesday. Next time, I will bring 3 times the amount of water though!! Be sure to bring more than you usually do. Will definitely go back here when I'm in Tucson!
This was one of my favorite trails while in Tucson. We took the tram up to the last stop and hiked down the trail back to the parking lot. Once off tram, you have to hike up top toward the top to get on the trail. It was easy/moderate, but a few spots were a little narrow and very high with steep downhills. Use a hiking stick for balance. We brought a lunch and ate on a huge rock halfway down. Really beautiful views. The end of trail is full of saguaros. Took about 3 hours to get down... But we stopped a lot to take pictures. Highly recommend this trail.
Only walked into trail for a few miles, but really enjoyed it. We were staying in a condo right near the trailhead so going for a quick morning walk was wonderful. It was easy as far as we went, but apparently the further you go, the rougher it gets... But apparently well worth the trip. Hope to do the whole trail next time we're in Tucson.
Really enjoyable moderate hike. A bit rocky in the beginning but not steep. Scenery beautiful and lots of saguaros. Near the turn around was quite overgrown and too many trees and ferns for my liking in the desert. The walk back has beautiful views of the canyon. I would definitely go back again when in Tucson.
This being our first moderate hike it was a workout! 2 hours up and 2 down. Heavy inclines with rocks and boulders so I would recommend hiking poles if you too are a beginner. However the pools are worth it, seeing we spent 2 hours there taking in the sights and temps!

I love this walk! Great cardio; great view! Extremely popular! Get there early
I'm a transplant from Illinois which if youve been there is incredibly flat. So for my first hike ever here it was pretty hard. if you take the tram to the trailhead I imagine itd be a bit easier but we decided not to. awesome bottom part of the trail with lots of rocks and follows the stream once you get to the higher parts of the trail it gets steep but the trail is pretty wide. The falls at the end are great and the water is refreshing to wade or swim in. Pack a lunch and plenty of water!

I agree that this is an easy trail. There's a restroom in the middle of it, which is nice. Saw no one, but it's not a trail that takes you 'away', as signs of civilization are all around you for most of it. Saw lots of hawks.
I recommend this for a quick and easy hike when you don't have much time. Good for beginners.
