This hike surprised me as to how beautiful the views and many waterfalls there were. I went in late March and there was a good amount of water, hiking a majority of the way alongside the creek. If you're looking for an extra challenge, continue up the Mount Lemmon Trail leading you to Mt. Lemmon Trail #5. Incredibly rewarding, however, I would suggest planning on someone picking you up at the top or camping a night before heading back down!
