make sure you bring you water. no shade. will definitely come back in the winter/spring when the falls are more than a dribble.

It was more than moderate.... I thought it was a tough hike.

Steep at times and the heat can make it that much more challenging. Bring plenty of water, take breaks, and be ready to be in the sun the entire time. Levels off after a while and the hike is easier. Headed towards the falls, but they had dried up. Some great views on the way back down.

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.

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!

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!

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.

Beautiful even without the water in the falls. Varied terrain. I love the great workout going up. I like that it is rocky. It helps me lose all my worries and just focus on the simplicity of movement and balance.

Gorgeous desert views. The climb is steep and a little challenging. There wasn't any water, but it was still a nice hike. I ran into a deer on the trail and bees at the falls.

Really enjoyed this early morning hike. The elevation change was definitely challenging but do-able with occasional breaks for selfies. The falls were dried up, but that was expected for a Dec hike. The views of East Tucson were still well worth it. Recommend getting there early or late in the day. We finished up right around noon and it was getting crowded.

Beautiful. Challenging climb at first with very rewarding sights at the end. I made it a loop with a few of the other trails in the area. Can’t wait to do it again.

A great trail. Well marked. Very wide. Great views and a nice incline. Water fall was dry today though. But other than that an excellent 6 mile trail

Well-maintained trail leading to a beautiful falls site. Even without recent rain the falls trickle was enough to get wet and enjoy the sound of falling water. Trail is really green currently with lots of butterflies and wildlife.

Went 2 weeks ago. Fun hike with awesome water falls but go when it has rained a day or two before.

Beautiful hike with the wildflowers and cactus blooming along the way. Fairly easy for a moderate hike. Falls were just a trickle, but the alcove was a cool place for a snack and the views are great!

Went February 25th. Quite a journey. Lots of friendly people. Good hike. Disappointing that the Bridal Wreath Falls only turned out to be a trickle of water.

Good trail in season with copious flowers and some water in the Falls.
