This was the toughest hike I’ve ever done. Totally worth the views at the top!

Definitely difficult! But loved the view from the top! Totally worth it!

ok, this started out very nice. but I got to a point where the actual trail signs differed from the online map. which caused me to go about a half mile out of my way. so I back tracked to where the discrepancy was. that's when I realized to finish the "loop" it would take me out of the park system and down to a golf course then back up a road to where I was parked. this was not at all appealing. so I turned it into an out and back. beautiful area, but the differences between reality and online caused issues for me.

Great trail, the reward of water at the end makes it totally worth it! Parked at the trailhead on Bear Canyon Rd which made it approximately 6.5 mi. My 8 & 12 yr old handled the distance just fine. Not a ton of water, but enough to get in and cool off. Would like to do again in the spring.

Amazing views defiantly must go trolly was down so it was 8 miles instead of 4 but was well worth the trip we went during dry season and the water was 10 feet at one point I’m 12 and did this so it wasn’t to deficult

Awesome! Wear your best boots and bring bug spray! Enjoy!

Beautiful views! You can feel the mileage, but it isn't miserable- pleasant burn. Food and water a must.

Awesome hike! Top pools had nice water, waterfall was running but not vigorous. My GPS was 8.56 from parking out and back, FYI.

An awesome trail to hike. Just have to pay attention to the trail signs and your surroundings.

Beautiful hike. Bring lots of water, a lunch and some energy chews. Definitely feels like 8 miles but well worth it when you get the the pools of water and the waterfalls! Bring a swim suit. And some sun screen ❤️ you will love it

Seven Falls was by far one of my favorite hikes of our trip! I loved crossing the stream and all the scenic views before reaching the falls at the end. My advice: bring a picnic lunch or snacks and enjoy some time to relax by the waterfalls.

Great fall/winter/spring hike for any experience level. One of the best views in the Catalinas.

make sure you bring you water. no shade. will definitely come back in the winter/spring when the falls are more than a dribble.

I liked this alternative to Sabino Canyon......

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.

It was a very nice trail. This time of year the water seemed to be flowing well, we only made it about a mile in before turning around due to all the gnats and no see-ums. If you plan to do this hike BRING BUG SPRAY! We forgot ours and were driven crazy!

A easy trail for all tucsonians

Beautiful mountains and wonderful “ side trails”

It was more than moderate.... I thought it was a tough hike.

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!

It's not as easy as it sounds, I'd say it's more for a greater level of difficulty, but the beauty of the path and the arrival at seven waterfalls make up for every rock climbed by the way !!! The landscapes are beautiful and I never tire of admiring the mountains !!! Worth it!!

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.

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.

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

One of the tougher trails in the Tucson area. The cooler option hangs a left and back-countriez up to the gaurd above finger rock.

Steep at times and the heat can make it that much more challenging. Bring plenty of water, take breaks, and be ready to be in the sun the entire time. Levels off after a while and the hike is easier. Headed towards the falls, but they had dried up. Some great views on the way back down.

Nice hike for family. Great lunch spot at the falls.
