Lovely views with unique indigenous plants pointed out by our hotel hiking guide who was very knowledgeable. Worth the visit to this lesser known national park especially if you are in the tuscon area

Early start, overcast, was a great morning to be on this trail in the summer. A two rattlesnake hike. You can go a long way on this trail, but turned around at 4 miles because it was heating up.

The views on this trail did not disappoint! I was expecting the hike to be more difficult due to the moderate rating. We were easily able to hike with a one-year-old in tow; she even did some hiking too. Easily one of my favorite hikes.

It's a very long trail along the ridge. You can continue to hike after the end of this trail. I hiked for 3 miles and went back. A good place to see the saguaros.

I hiked up to about 4500ft. Vistas are incredible. You’ll hike over solid rock faces and through grass as the sounds of the city fade and the view just gets better and better. Give yourself enough time to hike passed the 3.3 mile mark, it’s worth it.
