Nice easy hike. Beautiful!!

One of my favorites in the Tucson area. June 1 and other than meeting two early birds on the way down, had the trail to ourselves. Started at around 9am ...97 degrees. Lots of “stairs” and this is a leg workout. Logged 6 Miles in a little under three hours.

No water at falls this time of year. Great hike though! I need to do this in the wet season.

Easy, short hike especially during golden hour. Gives you an idea of what the whole NP has to offer. The informational placards were nice.

Nice hike with plenty of blooming cacti! Super hot with no shade coverage, bring sunscreen and water. Pretty flat the whole hike.

Great flat hike with tall Saguaro Cacti

Easy trail for the most part. Not always well marked. Got off the trail a view times, but found my way back. Good trail for your off workout days. No shade, very hot in the summer.

Really great afternoon hike. Tons of wildlife including lizards, rabbits and a Gila Monster =)

Want to go back with more than a trickled of water

Little water from falls but would be 5star when water is running in creek and falls.

No water in the falls in early April but the Sagauro’s everywhere were insane!! A totally alien experience for someone who’s never been to the Arizona desert!

great trail to get introduced to the desert.

Great hike, well marked and the stone house was pretty cool

Good hike. You have the option of going to the bridal falls in addition to the loop. Nice views but no public facilities

Great spot to get away. Really enjoyed some of the views and being on this simple, yet quiet hike.

Great when combined with an out-and-back on the Cactus Forest Trail. Outstanding for trail running. Would be extremely exposed during the summer months.

Starting from the picnic area, there are many excellent cacti and Palo Verde specimens along this easy trail. Tennis shoes ok. Bring water and be prepared for lots of sunshine. Map available at the Visitors Center.

Good trail to the waterfall. Considering that this is Arizona, it was nice to see water although it wasn’t anything to write home about. Overall, I had a fantastic hike!

Easy trail to hike as it is flat and the trail has good footing most of the way (very beginning is paved). There were a few parts on the trail where it was hard to see where you should be going. Nice hike to get the legs going or to recover from a harder hike the day before. No shade although at the picnic area about .5 or so in there is a nice place to sit and eat a snack or have lunch that provides a restroom and some shade.

Great hike in perfect weather and when the falls are falling (which they were on 03/04/2018). Also makes for a great trail running loop if you include the Three Tank Trail and Garwood Trail. Note that this area is very exposed for those hot summer days.

Great drive especially for those not wanting to get to far from the city. Found a few hiking spots on this road too. There aren't necessarily marked but some are legitimate trails. I found them using this app.

The weather is perfect right now and there is water at the water fall

Beautiful hike!

Lots of fun, Far enough away from the city but yet close enough.
The old stone houses a sight to see.
Trailhead and trails are clearly marked which is helpful...

This is the second time I’ve hiked this trail, both times in February. Plenty of water at the falls!

Amazing hike w/the beautiful waterfall.

Fun hike! Bring lots of water!! The water was running at the falls and it was beautiful!

Nice hike. Just a drip at the falls during this dry season. Took Carrillo trail coming back making it 7.25.

Yetman trail is pretty darn boring. Thank goodness we deviated off of the trail and headed up a peak just off the trail. Otherwise I would have really been disappointed
