Nice hike but trail is not great. I spent most of my time looking down so as not to slip on all the loose rock and dirt so I missed much of the beauty of the area. Did see a small herd of mule deer close to the end of the trail though.

Great short trail. It may be easy for 20 to 40 year olds , but a little challenging for a 62 year old fart.

Parking nightmare! Great if u stay at the Marriott. Otherwise plan to pay $15
StarrPass Trail is better option.

Great winter hike. Close to town and short. Amazing saguaros in the hidden canyon!

A beautiful short hike. Emphasis on short. It’s quite brief but would make for a wonderful lunch break for anyone who works on the west side.

We did this hike at 11am. Not the hottest point in a Tucson day, but plenty sizzle for a northwesterner. Lots of rocks, but beautiful. A good way to start if you haven't been hiking in a while.

This was a very nice easy trail to get out and stretch the legs a little bit. There was a nice view of Tucson at one point.

Went with the kids for a morning hike. Quiet and beautiful area. There was some light traffic, probably from the guests at Starr Pass. We saw a small group of deer. The ocotillo and smaller barrel cactus were blooming. Might come back in a couple of weeks to see if the rest of the flowers are out yet.

lots of switchbacks and rocky in some areas. I didn't see any wildlife not even a lizard.

Great little trail, some good views ... Slightly confusing because there are many trails and little to no trail markings. Enjoyed my time!
