Beautiful area that’s perfect for an overnight backpacking trip. Loved spending so much time walking through and lounging in the creek.

Easy hike

Great and short trail! I’m not used to the elevation so I had to pause a few times to just breathe but otherwise an easy trail with great view!

Nice gem that is often overlooked Preferred this to.meteor crater.

Definitely easy on the way down. I stopped at the creek for about a half hour and soaked my feet and had a snack and then the way up was brutal. I did start my hike til 2:30 so going down was in the sun, but on the way up it was all shaded and that was really nice!

Obviously a good hike for what you see in terms of history but there are better hikes in and around this nice national monument

The end of the trail is very rewarding with the waterfalls and views all along the way

This is a classic Tucson hike that everyone should do at least once. The elevation climbs gradually, so the hike is never extremely challenging, just long. Go early and bring plenty of water, some snacks too to enjoy at the falls. In early spring the falls are running vigorously, and the water is nice and cool. At peak season, this is a very heavily trafficked trail. Expect to see a lot of people. Today (early June) there was still water flowing, albeit minimally. It was still nice to take a dip at the end to cool off. Saw a few people, but had the pools to ourselves for a good 45 minutes.

Parking was tough when we got there. It wasn’t crowded for how many cars were in the parking lot and streets. Some shade from trees but other then that no shade. The scenery was beautiful! My mom and I didn’t complete all of it due to plans changing last min, but will come back!

Phew! This trail was a real challenge, but such a great one! Unfortunately i started super late and came back in the dark which was a bit rough on my own but exciting! It was nice to be later and not so hot but boy I can see how it would be a scorcher midday!! Follow the rock pile trail markers is my best advice. You can’t tell shit with just the map overlay about half way up. Thankfully respectful hikers maintain these markers and if you keep an eye out you’ll maintain your way! I for sure got turned around a few times but just be smart and keep at it!

really nice oasis in an unexpected part of the city. Particularly perfect for birders and/or people with limited mobility (no stairs, relatively flat)

Trail gets narrow in certain areas so really watch your footing.

No dogs allowed on trail.

Did this last year on my birthday. Sept 2019, It is an east hike going in, just long since its about 10miles. Just make sure u have enough water and start early to avoid heat exhaustion. We started hiking in and out before 4am and had no problem.

Great trail

As a more experienced hiker, I would definitely rate this at the low end of “moderate”. The first 1.3 miles or so are where the views are. As you get further, you’re mostly in trees and brush, lots of shade! Makes for a pretty good running trail. The end of this trail is pretty anticlimactic, you have to just turn around unless you want to take the time to go up finger rock. Didn’t have the time this morning but definitely will do another day.
