This trail is not listed on the park map but it starts at the same trailhead as Romero Ruins. It was a great hike up to the canyon and waterfall. It is a great trail for wildflower viewing in early spring. Once past the falls there are several other paths and it’s easy to make a wrong turn. Once you’ve made the descent with a mile to go the trail is easy to follow. Main washes near entrance are now dry.

7$ fee to get in the park is well worth it. Some areas are sandy and rocky but it was still an easy hike

Great views, sandy to rocky trails, some “steps” and a small creek half way up the loop that is a pleasant place to stop for a break. Lots of birds, some flowers, lizards and some bugs

Well maintained trail. No shade. Mostly sandy but can get rocky sometimes. Spring blooms everywhere. Although you can hear and see the waterfall, you cannot get very near unless you are willing to hike downhill, very sandy and steep! We did not attempt. Instead we continued along the trail and came across a river with several pools. Spent over an hour in the water! Will do this hike again. :)

Rattlesnake sunning itself on the trail past the waterfall. Almost stepped on it. It rattled. We retreated. Yikes. Hike with eyes wide open. Otherwise, great trail.

Great little secret hike to a waterfall in Catalina State Park. Don't tell anybody about it ;) The trail is unmarked, yet still had some traffic.

Great hike! Many wildflowers blooming. Views are fantastic!! I would say more of an easy rating, however there are a few steps, so don’t take anyone in a wheelchair counter clockwise is a good idea and have the AllTrails app handy to check trail direction. Unless it is prohibited, carins would be nice too to mark the trail.

We loved this tail. Look for the cactus cross on your way to the falls and pools
