Trail isn’t well maintained, cactus overlapping on trail in many parts.... wasn’t enjoyable....wont do again.

one of my favorite trails

Love this trail! Someone did remove the signs to get to the airplane reck, so just know that it’s 3 1/2 miles in! Bring extra water!

There is no marked trail below the canyon. Just climb between the rocks. A little dangerous but funny. When I went there, the fall is very small, but the pool under the fall is still very beautiful.

Hiked this yesterday around 7am before the heat. Starts with a few switchback to get you down to the riverbed. This is the driest I've seen this trail. There's water puddles here and there, with some trickling water. The lower water level does allow for easier climbing and route choice. Take your time on the final accent as you either go straight up the rock face or around the side. There's still plenty of stagnant water at the falls but no actual waterfall, which is a little disappointing, still a beautiful canyon though.

Awesome trail. Came across a rattler between the parking lot and the trailhead, so keep your eyes peeled. The initial descent is gradual, when you get to the river bed it’s fairly easy going except a few spots require some climbing over rocks. We had our 7 yr old walking with us and 10 month old in our Deuter III. There were a few larger rocks in the river bed that provided adequate shade for breaks for snacks. Unfortunately, with the kids progress was slow, starting the hike at 7 am, we turned back around around 830 due to the heat. I’m not sure if we would have been able to make it much further with the child carrier on anyway. All in all, a great hike, I hope one of these days once it get cooler we’ll be able to finish without having to worry about the heat.

What an awesome trail, definitely a hard trail.. great views. Lots of birds to see!! Glad I got to finish it this time and no rain!! Lots of shaded areas during the trail!! A must do again and add some of the side trails along the trail!!

If you like hordes of people with kids and dogs running loose then this is your hike!

If you leave early enough, you will be shaded by the canyon for most of the hike. We started a little after 6am and it was shaded the whole way there—however, the sun had risen over the canyon by the time we were heading back. We stayed at the falls for a bit. There was plenty of water running through them—beautiful—some people were even jumping in! Try to stay on the trail by paying attention to trail markers, it’s easy to miss them when you get to the riverbed.

A easy trail for all tucsonians

Beautiful mountains and wonderful “ side trails”

Make sure to stay hydrated... this trail ain’t for beginners !!!

This is my favorite trail around. It's steep enough to test you no matter how fit you are and has a great summit. There's also a chance of seeing some bighorn sheep too.

Beautiful hike with lots of potential wildlife sightings. Went last weekend and saw a Ringtail! Tried to find him again today but no luck. Saw him near an overlook at just under the first mile mark.

Dogs are allowed.

We just moved down to Tucson—it was nice to get a great view of the place. Great hike for newcomers or visitors. The first part of this hike is beautiful. Not much shade, but there was a nice breeze to keep us cooled down from the heat. Coming back down from the ridge, pay special attention to where the trail leads. Enjoy!

Worth the trip. Very well maintained trails. Beautiful!

I’ve been here three weeks and this was my third hike (Pusch Peak, Mt. Kimball, now this)—up to The Window—a must-see happy ending. The canyon part, roughly 75% of the trail, is moderately grown up with foliage from the monsoons. I saw an Arizona Black Rattler, Tiger Rattler, Black-Nose Gartersnake, a centipede, and quite a few mammals. My dad would’ve labeled the canyon as “snakey”. If that doesn’t bother you, you’ll love this one of a kind hike. The trail crosses the dry canyon creek about 15 times, but the trail is well-marked with cairns. I blew through 6L of water and ran out about 45 minutes from the truck. Spending about an hour at the window, taking pictures, and getting snakes out of my way—took me 11 hours to go 20 miles. And I’m built like a goddamn mythological god. So start early, pack at least 6L of water, keep an eye out for snakes, and find the amo can at The Window so you can sign in!

Great hike up to The Window. Tough. There’s a lot of small foliage in the canyon section (like 75% of the route) because of the rains. I started at 5:30am and saw three snakes, a centipede, and mule deer. Like my dad would say, “it’s snakey “. But if that doesn’t bother you, the canyon trail is unique to what I’ve done locally, and The Window is a true happy ending. Find the amo can and sign in!

Great easy hike. I won’t be doing this trail again only because it was too easy for me and there wasn’t any running water at the time. Also heard it’s packed when the water really starts to flow. Other than that I’d recommend it to anyone who is just starting off hiking or wants to get in a little cardio on the way back up.

I loved this trail! There wasn’t much water when I went so I’ll definitely be going again. A lot of flat hiking then a lot of incline towards the end.

Great hike in Tucson! It’s fairly sleep and off putting at the beginning but it was definitely worth it. I loved seeing how the flora and fauna and the geology changed as you went up the. Went mid July, started around 8am and caught the start of a monsoon around noon. There isn’t any cover so be prepared during monsoon season!

It was hard, but amazing views and at the end the Seven Falls!

Went out today for an afternoon hike. The trail is in great shape. There was a lot of water today. We were able to swim at the pools at the falls. Lots of frogs and lizards on the trail today.

I don't really have anything to share that others have not expressed already. Take plenty of water. My biggest piece of advice is to preplan your trip here! My brother and I hiked this as it sits right outside his neighborhood. The views are great and you will be rewarded for your efforts just plan ahead and familiarize yourself with the route beforehand otherwise you may/will get frustrated with the lack of directions. I would wear a good hiking shoe, he lent me a pair of his as I only had cross trainers and couldn't believe the difference it made.

Awesome refreshing swim at the top! Can’t beat it!

No water yet. We found tadpoles in some small puddles. Make sure you bring extra water. Very fun and easy hike. Can’t wait to go back! My 8 year old did great

As many times as I have done this trail, it doesn’t get easier but by far my favorite trail!! Happy lucky Sunday, saw big horn at pretty close distance, 8 of them!! And a Gila monster at the top!! Well worth my Sunday!!
