SPENDING THE NIGHT in the canyon, there are two regulations you should be aware of. Over night parking permits can only be obtained online and require dates and car information, processing is about two days, so plan to reserve your permits accordingly.

Also, group limit is 6 persons. There is only one safe spot to set up camp on the trail within the first 4 miles. that spot will only accommodate about 8 people. You will not be able to camp on the trail. it is well used even in early morning, and there are steep drop offs just at the trails edge.

Fantastic view of the city at night. Its even better in the early morning.
BYO Firewood- when permitted.

Classic Arizona adventure. Beautiful scenery, great swimming and even diving for the adventurous.

This hike is a b****!!! But in the best way possible. The views and sense of accomplishment at the top are absolutely unbeatable. One of my favorite hikes when I need a good workout.

one of my favorite trails. Diving into the cool water in the falls is very rewarding!!

I loved it, I love the scenery, I love to getting up out of town for awhile. Not very crowded at all, went about nine and a half miles from me my mom and my daughter I would consider this more of an easy trail my mom said it's most definitely more of a moderate type trail with lots of rocks and other small obstacles,bring plenty of water and
enjoy the views.

Awesome trail...challenging but well worth the view at the top. Bring more water than you think you need.

This trail is great - excellent trail, wonderful views, and interesting history. But its name is somewhat misleading and might be better named the Molino Basin Trail. It doesn't start from the Molino Canyon Vista turnout but from the Molino Basin Campground parking lot 0.7 miles further uphill on the General Hitchcock Highway. It is the northernmost portion of Passage #10 - "Redington Pass" of the Arizona Trail, After skirting south of the Molino Basin Campground the trail climbs steadily westward until it reaches the ridgeline and nearby Gordon Hirabayashi trailhead, campground and memorial at the site of the former Catalina Federal Honor (prison) Camp begun in 1937 and used for relocating Japanese-Americans in WW-II.

Fairly easy trail, it has tons of flowers and a beautiful stream that runs close by on multiple parts.

But this trail is closed now due to the mines

Great hike, take plenty of water although there is a fill station at about the half way point.
