Beautiful! A little rocky and kind of slippery after a light afternoon rain. Trail gets easier after the first 1.5 miles.

Great workout with impressive views of Tucson at the top.

4 stars for difficulty. We started at 6am but spent too much time for snacks and fun with our new friend tortoise completely forgot about the summer heat. When we headed back down, it was HOT. I forgot to turn the recording off until half way home lol. I'll do this again when the temperature is much lower.

Pay attention to the trail

Arrived closer to sunset and found a rattlesnake! The hike may not have been worth it, but the rattlesnake made our day. Also saw some lizards, a rabbit, and an antelope squirrel!

Fantastic hike! It's not easy but it's not difficult. Pretty tiring hike all the way to the big falls (3rd waterfall). We went at 8am and it was a lovely hike, saw very few people. It's an amazing reward to get to the big falls and swim.

Once you get to the second falls you can either climb up slippery rock (be very careful) or take almost a horse shoe pathway (pretty steep) to the falls that will add a few minutes to the falls but is a lot safer than the slippery free hand climb.

Please note my wife and I did this as complete beginners and we did just fine. Bring plenty of water and be careful!
