Great beginners trail. Definitely rocky. Make sure to wear good hiking shoes. It is at the top of the mountain (around 9000 ft). Beginners should go slow. Very easy to get altitude sickness from breathing heavy.

Hiked it on a Sunday after Saturday rains. Stream was up to my knees during crossings and all seven falls were roaring. Be careful not to lose track of the trail near the last (7th) crossing.

Great day hike.

Nice easy trail. Lots of birds, bugs, and just plain ole nature! Good photo opportunities and gorgeous sunset. It took me 1:20:49, but could've completed faster if not for all the photos I took.
Would do again and again and never get tired of it.

First-time Hiker in AZ!

Agua Caliente park is an beautiful desert oasis. I live in Tucson and enjoy coming here, it’s relaxing to walk along the pond, which is home to turtles, fish, ducks, a variety of birds and other wildlife. The palm trees and reflections in the pond create beautiful photos. There’s also a paved pathway that leads to two other retention ponds, just watch your step as there are two diamondback Rattlesnakes known to frequently cross this paved pathway. I recently crossed paths with the larger one, about 5ft, she’s a healthy good looking one, just avoid startling or scaring them and they’ll continue on their way. There’s plenty of parking, well maintained restrooms, a large grassy area, picnic tables and benches. Overall Agua Caliente park is a beautiful little oasis in the desert, a great place for relaxing, having a picnic, going for a nature walk, not so much for actual hiking.

Fun trail, but wife got a little altitude sickness, so be aware.

Short hike with great views. Very easy hike for beginners.

It was a nice, scenic hike. there was plenty of water in the pools below to swim in. The hike back up definitely works your thighs and calves.

Pretty green, 70degrees!

Great hike, the incline is much easier if you do the loop clockwise.

Some good views but much of hike through open area burned 12-15 years ago.

Beautiful trail in a beautiful day!

I hiked the Meadow Trail down, then up the Lemmon Trail to make a counterclockwise loop. It’s rather steep coming back up that way. Most other hikers seemed to be doing the loop in the opposite direction, which I’ll try next time. Either way, a beautiful hike.

Rushed through this hike on a rainy day. The way in is a gorgeous and relaxing hike. The way back is all uphill and a little more challenging. Dog loved it. Saw four tiny deer along the way.

Absolutely beautiful. It rained the night before, wild flowers and birds everywhere. Wonderful hike!!

Amazing! We went swimming at the end - what a blast. We did this hike with 6year old twins. There are some steep parts at the end, but little ones can make it with a hand here and there. Absolutely worth 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.

This is a fun trail to hike, easy with interesting variations with the vegetation. The Marshall Gulch side is very open with some trees and a little creek. The Aspen Trail is true to its name. Beautiful aspens everywhere, nicknamed it the Aspen Forest. There are some young trees growing on both trails, as Summerhaven had a fire some years back. Would still highly recommend these trails. There are connecting trails to these trails if you want to go further. Lots of people and parking is limited. If you park on forest land, make sure you pay the $5 fee as we saw a park ranger giving out tickets when we were there. The fee box is where the trailhead is located. Wonderful hike, picnic areas and Mt. Lemmon has many hiking opportunities.

I'm not an avid hiker, yet

Moderate trail. The deeper in lots of rocks to climb and small pools of water. Nice options for views and just a couple hours commitment

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

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.
