This is a long shot. But I left my watch at the pools, it was very dear to me, and I wore it every day. Idk when I'll be back, but if someone finds it before then, please contact 520-255-4413, or at least take care of it. Thank you. UPDATE: I GOT MY WATCH BACK THANKS TO A FEW OF YOU HIKERS!! THANK YOU!! EXTREMELY GREATFUL.

The prettiest hike I’ve ever been on. Done it a handful of times and the only time I was disappointed was when I was stormed out randomly halfway up. Perfect length for a 1/2 day hike and the pools at the end are awesome. Be careful where you jump though if the water is too dark to visualize the bottom! We saw a person being airlifted out once.

It's a great quick fitness hike with beautiful views!

Beautiful scenery and a real challenge for my first "moderately" difficult trail.

Romero is a fairly heavily trafficked hike of moderate intensity. It has a lot of variety though and it has excellent views. I've done it over a dozen times and it never disappoints.

Overpriced park.

An amazing MTB trail. I recommend the Golder Ranch Advanced Loop and the Chutes.
