Bring LOTS of water and sunscreen! There is very little shade on this trail. Incline and terrain wise it was quite nice. It took us almost 5 hours to complete, but a lot of that was due to rest stops in every tiny patch of shade we found. I'll definitely be returning when it's a little cooler out.

Stay to the right or you will end up on phone line in the beginning. Start early (7am) so you can spend more time playing at the top before the descent. Took 2 hours from the top to the parking lot.

Recent rains in the Tuscon area meant that the falls and the river were still running. The temps we in the low 70's and there was a continuous cool breeze blowing up the valley. The views are spectacular and the falls were gorgeous.
An easy hike even for a beginner although there were places along the trail where the trail could be better marked. At one point when we were unsure which direction to go someone had built a couple of cairns to mark the way, by the time we had come down someone else had removed to cairns.
A beautiful hike to take in spring, in the heat of the summer it would be unbearably hot, ans in the rainy season it would be all but impassable.
