Went counter clockwise, beautiful sights of the mountains. Everything is in bloom. There is as much up as there is going down, wonderful!

Went in the morning to beat the heat, and met several other friendly hikers. We took our time to enjoy the views. As a party of four, half of us were using poles, but I found that I did ok without - personal choice. It does get a bit rocky, but there are steps formed in some of the steeper stretches. We enjoyed it so much, we went back to do the full loop a few days later!

Gorgeous at sunset. You can see the sun reflecting or shadowing off the mountains going one direction and can face the sunset going the other direction.

Quick elevation gain thanks to a very steep and rocky trail. Great views once you get to the top

Great trail run despite a few wrong turns. Flowers are beautiful right now. It isn’t really 4.5 miles, forgot to turn off recording.

This is a fun trail. The elevation gain is not that bad but a lot of it is climbing rock stairs. Narrow trail in a lot of places with cacti right up to the edge. Lots of Blooming but not the cacti.

Fun, easy nature walk. If possible, doing the longer loop is much more rewarding as far as views and scenery.

This is a an easy to moderate hike for most. I did it carrying my 8 month old in our Baby Bjorn. The trail was clear although in some cases the vegetation overlaps the trail a bit. I recommend you bring tweezers in case a cactus snags you as you pass by. Dogs are not allowed. There are quite a few rocks that you must step up or down on and they can be a little slippery at times. The scenery is what you expect in Tucson . . . Lots of cacti. Not really my favorite place to hike but when the weather is cloudy and not too hot, you do what you can to get outside.

Fun hike. Keeps your ankles working as there are quite a few rock steps. Beautiful winter hike after it rains.
