This is a very short trail near Mt Lemmon SkyCenter. It's a short trail, but enjoy the views.

Beautiful trail, great views, hiked the Meadow trail down and came back up the Mt Lemmon trail. If your looking for a nice cardio workout the hike back up the Mt Lemmon trail will do it. 300 ft elevation increase over the last 1/2 mile or so.

The trail was nice and easy. As you approach near the end it gets very rocky and goes downhill. I reached the end and used the Mount Lemmon Trail to get back which means I had to go back up uphill. It was rocky and knocked me out but was worth it.

Nice short trail, not too demanding, but the upward slope back to the parking lot will get your heart beating faster. We hiked on a cloudy, misty day so views were obscured, but we enjoyed the hike anyway. Turn this into a loop hike by returning on Mount Lemmon Trail #5, and also take in the short side trail to the Lemmon Rock lookout tower on the way back, one of the oldest fire lookout towers in the nation.
