Finger Rock to Pima Canyon Trail ist ein 9.9 Meilen langer, moderat besuchter Streckenabschnitt in der Nähe von Tucson, Arizona. Er führt entlang eines Flusses, vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt einen Wasserfall und schöne Wildblumen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert werden. Die Route ist am besten von September bis Mai zugänglich.

Rugged hike with incredible mountain vistas. This point to point hike combines the two most popular "must see" hikes in the Catalinas. From breathtaking canyon vistas, to mountain top views of both Tucson and Oro Valley your camera is sure to get almost as good a workout as you, but beware, all these photo opportunities come at a price, this hike is not for the faint at heart. Finger Rock alone is known as one of the most demanding short hikes in the area, in the time it takes to drink most of your water, and bring as much as possible, you'll have gained upwards of 4500 ft in elevation. Near the summit of the canyon take the "Right turn" when the trail splits, head towards the summit of Mount Kimball. Once at the summit you're at your half way point. The remaining downhill portion will take you through Pima Canyon, providing you with reason to smile as you explain to all the half day hikers where you started from. Plan to leave as early as possible, and don't forget that camera.

My Kimball to ??? 3-4 miles from Pima Canyon TH is a BUSHWHACK! My bad to not allow enough daylight and didn’t have headlights. Spent the night 11/30/19 rather than get in trouble by moving in the CANYON! After my experience have heard no kidding 6 stories of bushwhack experiences. Advice is cheap: EARLY start, GREAT foot gear and experience looking for Carins, Long lasting cell batteries to cross reference w map, and GEAR to spend the night!

Only went about 2 miles up. Not that difficult for a fit 80-year old. Dramatic views. Going back tomorrow for a longer hike.

This is an overgrown mess with poorly marked trails, hardly used trails, and many places to slide and cut yourself. It also is grossly too short on this app. Thankfully we had a real map as well. This is at least 13 miles. We helped two lost hikers (who were also using the app) and thought they had much less distance to travel. Long story short, mountain rescue was called to help the girls after we helped them as much as possible. I would not recommend this to anyone. I may get some flak for this but in its current condition, even on a beautiful day, I would not recommend this to anyone. The view at the top is breathtaking and the incline, though steep, is manageable if you're in decent condition. DO NOT DEPEND ON THE APP, BRING A REAL MAP!

What an accomplishment! We had tried this trail 2 times prior and not made it to the “top” 3rd time we made it ALL the way to Mt Kimball!!! What a view! The trail is HARD, but if you take your time and look up the views are worth the soreness for the next few days! Will do it again

Finger rock trail is steep and rocky with a lot of elevation gain. Best to start real early as there is no shade until the higher elevations. The view from Mt. Kimball is amazing and definitely worth the effort. Trail conditions beyond that at the top of Pima Canyon are poor. Overgrown, lots of erosion, loose rocks and the trail is hard to follow in several spots. After that trail improves. If you’re hiking up Pima Canyon to Mt. Kimball and reach the Pima saddle sign, the trail continues to the right and is easy to miss, look for the cairns.

I absolutely do not recommend going right now. It is still very snowy and icy on the ledges and there were more than a few occasions where we were very afraid of falling. If you are a very experienced hiker and/or climber and slippery ledges are your thing then go for it but this is my warning.

Would not recommend this hike at the moment. Soooo beautiful but terrifying as the top is covered in snow and the trail is easily lost. Thank God for all trails bc lost the trail about 50 times and almost slid off the cliff in the snow many times. Wait till the snow melts and stick to finger rock for now. Also this hike from finger rock to pima is 16 mi not 9.9.

This is our favorite hike so far. Magnificent views. No dogs. Just gorgeous wilderness all around you. The wildflowers are in bloom now too. Lots of waterfalls....

Initial 1.5 miles of descent from Mt. Kimball on Pima Canyon Trail was extremely challenging. No tracks since last snow on that portion of Pima Canyon trail so I took a few wrong turns. Also, very icy on area around 6.3-6.4 miles on my hike. Next time I’ll hike this route in the Spring! Otherwise excellent trail and nice views!!.

We took the Pina Canyon Trail to Mount Kimball (don’t stop at the Mt. Kimball sign, it’s another 0.2 miles to the boulder and amazing views), and returned via the Finger Rock Trail to the trailhead off Craycroft. Beautiful ever-changing scenery; fairly steep toward the top of both trails; a real knee-jarring return. Able to see Finger Rock from front and back. Recorded 11.6 miles and 7 hours, including a leisurely lunch.

This was a difficult hike. Kicked my butt. I started out early in the day and took my time. Pima canyon itself is beautiful going down. The views of the canyon are stunning. HOWEVER! The pima canyon trail going down is very overgrown for the first 2/3. Really difficult to see the trail for most of it. I lost my way several times. Only my GPS app helped me finally make it to the bottom. Otherwise, I'd come back and do this again.

Pretty accurate distance and vertical! Exactly what I expected from those measurements! Be prepared, this is a hard hike. Unless you’re very fit, this will take you 6-8 hours. Maybe longer. It’s very hot with only the last 3/4 mike with much shade. As someone who loves hiking 14ers in Colorado during the summer, I’ll say the difficulty is pretty comparable to some of the “easier” ones. Great training. Don’t be unprepared!

Difficult, but the view at the top is totally worth every single switchback!

Wish dogs were allowed... but I get it for the sake of the bighorn sheep.

The distances on this app are very wonky. I finally went with a GPS, and the course is about 20.2km and 5100ft of Elevation gain and loss (including the undulation). We spent 8 hours to get it as accurate as we could. Great trail, just expect to be out 5-7 hours.

Had a great time on this in the dead of winter. Took us about 6 hours including a few frivolous breaks for playing hacky sack and enjoying the scenery. Can't imagine doing it on a hot day.

Finger Rock to Mount Kimball. Return over Pima Saddle then down Pima Canyon trail. A car shuttle is needed. The first 5 miles are over a 4000’ elevation gain. Bring a 3 liter water blabber & headlamps just in case. Start at sunrise to end before dusk. The loop took us 11 hours including lunch & picture taking. This loop is similar to Hiking Bright Angel trail to Indian Gardens & back the same day.
