I've done this hike/run several times. It's always fantastic. Definitely just a hike for most, as it's no joke in terrain and elevation increases, but you can jog occasionally. There's a perfect N/S road on the south side of the trail that's a perfect 4 mile marker that you can see off in the distance as well.
excellent hike. the scenery is beautiful. elevation is moderate.
Pretty gradual incline. Great views. And lots of nature to see. Go as far as you want. Great sunset spot down to the left before finishing the trail. Last time we even saw a great Gila Monster!
I would rate this moderate to difficult!
Great trail that offers views of Mt. Lemon, Mt. Rincon, and Tucson.
Pleasant. Beautiful scenery, flora & fauna. I was hiking with a group of seniors and everyone enjoyed it.
Great Trail! Start early and enjoy walking the ridgeline. Every elevation gain yields another amazing view
well maintained climb is steady so you make better time than normal
go thru many different eco zones
