This is a great moderate hike, that captures great desert landscape and rugged mountain views. From the trail head, hike east up the obvious path towards Pusch Peak. The trail will lead you up and along a small canyon,l which will be on your left. This hike ends once you are at the base of a 250-300 foot peak. There is a small trail that will lead you to the top of this peak, if your ready for the up hill push! It makes for a great city view. You will notice a few side trails along the way, however if you stay on the east to west trail, you will be right on. Ample parking is available off Oracle and Linda Vista. The walk up the trail is easy to moderate, with lots of rock steps to climb over. The second half of the trail is downhill, with more rock steps. This is a good hike to do if you only have an hour or so. Plan to do this loop in the morning during the summertime. That way you will be in the shade of Pusch Ridge above. The trail offers beautiful views both up the trail, looking at Pusch Ridge, and down the trail, looking at Oro Valley. Lots of birds are seen throughout the area.

I love the views from the top. Took our group about 2 hours to do the loop. Be prepared for a leg workout!

Nice easy hike. Lots of prickly pear cacti lining the trail. Good views of Oro Valley from the apex of the loop.

A nice hike close to town. Great view of the mountains. The Oracle road noise goes away once you're ~15 min down the trail.

This was a great trail somehow I got off the beaten path which is not supposed to be so easy but it happened to me and then dip going up the side of the mountain so be careful and make sure that you stay on the trail you're meant to be on and have a blast bring lots of water.
