Love this trail. “Follow the dots and have fun”... priceless! Be sure to bring plenty of water as a lot of the trail is over exposed granite and in full sun. You’ll see lots of hikers, bikers on the Peavine section, and possibly rock climbers. Don’t hike this trail at dawn or dusk as the bugs will make you wish you didn’t have a face. Bald eagles nest here in the fall/winter and you’ll see them fishing over the lake if you keep an eye out!

I love this trail as a 5-mile trail run, I’ll just circle around twice. Great for my dog as he just jumps into the lake afterwards to cool off. When the lake is high, the loop is a little splashy near the dam, but it’s doable. It’s $5, but free on Wednesdays.

This is a long shot. But I left my watch at the pools, it was very dear to me, and I wore it every day. Idk when I'll be back, but if someone finds it before then, please contact 520-255-4413, or at least take care of it. Thank you.

Steeper than expected on this short hike, but well worth it for the views at the top!

This trail was my first hike here in AZ. it's a short trail but gives a great cardio workout. I will definitely be doing this trail more often.

I’ve been hiking the Catalina Mts since I was 5 years old. This has always been one of my favorite hikes. We started out at 5:30 am and came down at 4pm, taking our time and with my partner being a geologist, spent plenty of time looking at different rocks. Today was probably not the most opportune time to do this hike– with temperatures hitting mid 90’s by 11 am, we were getting burnt and dehydrated. That being said, the hike itself was well worth it. Perhaps we would have been back sooner if the stretch from the summit of Kimball to the drop into Pima was better marked. We lost the trail quite a few times, sucking up a lot of time out of our journey. All in all, a great day and a feel good hike with the calorie burn and the amazing views. Bring more water than you think you’ll need. You’ll use it.

Awesome hike with great views. Only say one other person the whole day. Start at the North trail head. It took us 6 hours to summit and visit both lookout points. Really great hike!

This is an absolutely beautiful hike. It's all uphill to Fremont Saddle, but the view is worth it. We had the most perfect day. There are so many hidden sites and experiences. Bring more water than you think you need!

My husband and I hiked this on Tuesday and I'm 55 and he's 54. We left at 6:30 with a temp of 36 degrees at the top, with clear skies and a light wind. Took us 3 hrs to get to Phantom Ranch - a total of 7.4mi by my Garmin. The views are spectacular as the sun rises. We both had Camel packs with water and tailwind. Didn't drink as much on the way down. Planned snacks as I would for an ultra. Took 45 min at Phantom ranch (got lemonade, recharged everything, changed socks & added water to the packs) before heading back to and up Bright Angel. Took us 5hr 1 min to get to the top - 11 miles - for a total of 18.4miles. Much less steep than the So Kaibab and "easier" to hike but much longer. Plan on appropriate snacks in addition to hydration. There is great beer available at the Bright Angel Lodge after you finish. You won't be sorry you did this hike if you plan and train well. It is truly an incredible experience!

awesome!

An easy trail, perfect for anyone to take on. The fall colors are amazing right now. Go early in the morning if you wish to enjoy the trail in peace. This popular spot is full of locals and tourists by mid morning.
