Tucson, Arizona Map

The views aren't that impressive, but the trail is very well maintained. Nice easy hike.

Great directions! Great short hike. Early start recommended if you are going in the summer time, it was about 95 degrees we we went after noon. Saw standing pools of water at the bottom but no waterfall. Perhaps we didn't go far enough. I forgot to turn on the feature to track the hike. I would try it again if I was in the area.

Went a little too late in the day. The sun was killer and there was no hope for shade anywhere. But overall not a bad hike, moderate difficulty with a great view

Really beautiful trail even late in May. Nice hike to get the blood flowing but not to long (~1.5 hr). Definitely a more crowded trail and crowded area to hike, but very pleasant. Not steep at all. Tons of fun!

Not a great trail to run up to Mt. Lemmon Summit. A lot of large loose rocks.
