October. Good shade well past 7 Fall, started 0615. I don't know about 7 hrs, my 10yo and I did it in 11.5 leisurely, about 16.5 miles from viz center and back. Beautiful scenery you don't see from common trails. no real water yet, pack 200oz+ to be safe. Did not see a sole until hitting tram 9, someone coming from the pool followed. Good hike, not for beginners, my boy is well versed hiker.

I'll start by saying that I love this loop. It's my favorite in the entire Tucson area. You need to get out very early if you're going to take it on April - October. Starting up Phoneline and ending on the Bear Canyon side offers the opportunity to take a quick dip in the cool Seven Falls water. There is a great landing near the high point with some large boulders to sit down and grab something to eat. Took me about 7 hours to complete.
