My favorite so far in Tucson. There are actually quite a few options of other trails after you get on the trail about 1/8th of a mile, and it’s all clearly marked so no confusion if you are on the trail or not. And the Saguaro cactus are abundant, and beautiful! Lots of mountain bikers come through so just be aware of trail etiquette (step to the side when you hear them coming), and you will be great (and they all appreciate it when you do this). Only downside is no facilities anywhere (no gas station bathrooms nearby either), so be prepared for that...

Beautiful Tucson day and beautiful hike. A bit rocky but navigable. Little water in the pools. A little past the pools the vegetation change to more green with trees. Prettier. Make sure you watch for the cairns along the way. Would do it again.

Good trail well marked and great views.

Beautiful hike!

It's our second time hiking up from the hwy and it was much better. Not hard anymore. We hiked to the canyon where there was nice little falls. Just under 7 miles RT. the temp was in the high 30s starting out and stayed nice and cold until we got down and it was a little warm. Really enjoyed the workout.

Great fun hike. Made better by the 55° sunny weather (Feb 24). Few notes

• Not to soft or rocky of a trail
• Balanced with a good amount of flat and straight sections mixed with inclined switchbacks
• Very much scenic with loads of desert vegetation
• Good amount of traffic and not too crowded
• Lots of visible signage... No dogs
• Don't stop at the first set of pools you see. There are way more with a mini "waterfall" (@ 5 feet) at the end.

Doesn’t get easier but still an amazing hike... the views are just spectacular!!

Gorgeous day for a hike in Arizona!

Great cardio workout! For people of all ages!

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! A different beauty from any other park we have ever visited! My husband & I have enjoyed this hike in February...though it is 50 degrees, the sun warmed us up quickly. The desert color has been spectacular and the ridge trail that this trail leads you to (Lorraine Lee Trail) is a MUST SEE and DO NOT forget your GOOD CAMERA! I did it twice this weekend!

Lots of fun, Far enough away from the city but yet close enough.
The old stone houses a sight to see.
Trailhead and trails are clearly marked which is helpful...

A great Cardio workout, Especially if you make it past the half way mark.
The climb a bit more difficult, Quite a steep incline.
I love hiking this during the early morning summer months.
When the desert cactus is are blooming.
Once you made it to the top a great view of the city of Tucson

Fairly quick hike up if you are in shape. Super views. Upper trail can be tricky to find at times. Have fun.

Great hike. Clear, cool pools.

Went on February 19th 2018 on a windy and cloudy day and it was just perfect! Wonderful views both ways. Glad I had this app so that I could find the trail again on certain rocky spots. Great gradual incline. When you get to the end of the trail it kind of leaves you with a feeling of “Is this it?” I kind of expected a higher point with a better view but instead the trail got into an abrupt end. From there you can see a small cave that looks very inviting but to get there you have to scramble on some slippery rocks and gravel and very little room of survival if you loose your footing. Beautiful and heart pumping hike for a day with little time and cooler weather ❤️

Beautiful views, some bouldering too.

This is the second time I’ve hiked this trail, both times in February. Plenty of water at the falls!

Great short trail. It may be easy for 20 to 40 year olds , but a little challenging for a 62 year old fart.

Hiked up Old Baldy came back on the Super Trail. Lot of ice on the North side, snow 2 feet deep toward the summit. Very soft snow on the South side. Have been up there several times before but this was the best. A real adventure. January 2017
