The Coronado National Forest includes an area of about 1.78 million acres spread throughout mountain ranges in southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico. It is located in parts of Cochise, Graham, Santa Cruz, Pima, and Pinal counties in Arizona, and Hidalgo County in New Mexico.

It wasn't what i was expecting. but great trail. beautiful at the end. just be prepared for a lot of people even during middle of week.

After a total of 107 switch backs, several water breaks, I still managed to reach the top of the summit which I really enjoyed. The views were magnificent. Don't let the short distance fool you, be prepared....bring lots of H20, protein foods to include raw honey, bagels, nuts, etc...and of course pack enough for at least an overnight in case of emergency. Be safe.

GREAT hike with BEAUTIFUL views! The weather was perfect!

One of the best hikes I’ve ever done. I went weekday early morning and it was still pretty busy.... around 12 it got intensely crowded.
The hike is so so worth the falls though, and I’d do it again any day. You just have to take care when crossing the river... as the trail isn’t marked too well in these areas! Got lost a couple of times but again, so totally worth it.

Parking lot busy. Worth it.

I went up via Old baldy Trail and returned via Super Trail. For me it was more than moderate on the way up.
I think that route should be listed as Josephine saddle loop trail.

Good footing, easy to follow trail with amazing views. We saw many deer on the ascent last week. The springs had water, and there were patches of snow after the Josephine Saddle.

Awesome hike!! Rocks are slippery. Be careful!! Don’t try to do any stunts by seven falls. Take tram if you have less time to hike. Checked my Bucket list

March with Michael, took 70 minutes walking fast to get finished before sunset. Great panoramic views.

A nice hike with family from Oregon. Way too many people so didn’t hike all the way down. It was a little warm but manageable.

Beautiful hike to some waterfalls. I met a lot of people along the way. I started at 8am and got back to the visitor's center at 1pm.

Nice trail, not difficult for myself or my hiking buddies (13 and 7yo). As others have mentioned, the rocks and dirt on the trail can be loose and a little slippery. Overall there were beautiful views, nice for a quick hike not too far outside of town.

Great hike through beautiful rock formations. Hiked on a Monday, no one around. Had the whole place to ourselves. Very nice hike!

Please be sure to read my
“VERY IMPORTANT NOTE” at the end!!!

The parking lot and trails fill up fast and be sure to bring plenty of water for the trek. There was lots of water at the falls (3/12/18) along with people and even some crazy ones that jumped in above the falls. The incline is moderate and you cross over the creek 5-7 times before making the final ascent up to the falls and was easily done without getting my feet wet. I suggest that you take advantage of any nice shaded spots to stop and rest on the way up. Overall I enjoyed myself immensely and would recommend this trail to anyone. .

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: there are huge flat rocks at the falls that are very slippery. I managed to slip while still wearing my hiking boots, but luckily didn’t fall. So, I cannot stress enough to be EXTREMELY CAREFUL and use great caution at all times. Taking even greater caution if you happen to take off your shoes and get your feet wet.

3/10/18 - pools were full and waterfalls were running! Absolutely beautiful!

It's very steep in the second half, but you will be rewarded by a great view at the top. I was hope to see some wild flower in this trail, but there are few in early March.

Difficult, but loved it!!!

Great hike! Very easy but worth the falls at the end!

I went a couple months ago and should have picked a different time of year. There was barely any water at the falls and it was hot

Didn't go all the way up, but beautiful area once you get there. Unfortunately, a long/uneventful hike just to get to the good stuff

I have hiked this trail twice. Both times, I was with others who weren’t ready for the the trek. Consequently, each time, I had turn around at the 3/4 point. It’s frustrating, but I can’t push others beyond their limitations. I hike with others for safety and company, but I may have to return by myself in order to actually make it to the falls. (I’ve read that this time of year is perfect because the falls are beautiful after the mountain snow melts.) I am always concerned about safety when hiking alone, but I wouldn’t be alone on this “touristy” trek. However, once I do it, I probably won’t return. This trail is simply too crowded—hence, my rating. (Who knows, that rating may change after I actually SEE the falls.)
1. Leave early to try to beat the crowds and heat.
2. Take cash for Bear Canyon tram, if you plan to ride it.
3. Start at the Bear Canyon Trailhead to avoid tram fees and long lines.
4. Take your trekking poles!
5. Take plenty of water!
6. Don’t attempt this trek if you are a beginner.
7. Take your patience; some people are rude.
8. Wear old shoes that you don’t mind getting wet.
9. Wear shorts, as you may wade in the creek, depending on water depth.
10. Have dry shoes and socks in your backpack or car.
11. Take snacks for the trail.
12. Be aware that this is a 6-8 mile RT hike, depending on where you start. (The falls are approx 3 mi from the last tram stop.)
13. Be aware that there are no RR facilities past the last tram stop.

Very easy trail and well maintained. It’s long but worth the hike to the falls

We went past the turnoff to seven falls — no people and some nice areas

Tough trail, but well worth it! The views are amazing!

This is my “go to” trail for a good wheeling experience. The three feathers obstacle and big hill just before you get to it are a lot of fun. You can spend a full day out on the trails and checking out the fall. If you have a 4x4 it’s your passport to this diamond in the middle of the desert!

Great hike. Definitely deserving of its “Hard” difficulty rating. Make sure to get an early start it took me about 3 hours round-trip and coming back down the trail in the afternoon sun is a killer. Beware of false summits. Continue along the trail until you reach the final trail sign designating the end of Blackett’s Ridge. Talked to a couple in the parking lot afterward who turned back around after the second false summit. It’s worth the climb!

This was a great experience for someone used to hiking on the east coast! Took the tram to the end and hiked back on the phoneline. Just about 2 hours total and some great sights.
