Tucson, Arizona Map

Beautiful scenery and a real challenge for my first "moderately" difficult trail.

SPENDING THE NIGHT in the canyon, there are two regulations you should be aware of. Over night parking permits can only be obtained online and require dates and car information, processing is about two days, so plan to reserve your permits accordingly.

Also, group limit is 6 persons. There is only one safe spot to set up camp on the trail within the first 4 miles. that spot will only accommodate about 8 people. You will not be able to camp on the trail. it is well used even in early morning, and there are steep drop offs just at the trails edge.

Fantastic view of the city at night. Its even better in the early morning.
BYO Firewood- when permitted.

Great hike, but overgrown right now. Needs some trimming

This hike is a b****!!! But in the best way possible. The views and sense of accomplishment at the top are absolutely unbeatable. One of my favorite hikes when I need a good workout.

one of my favorite trails. Diving into the cool water in the falls is very rewarding!!

Great hike. Real easy to do for a starter hike.

We did this hike at 11am. Not the hottest point in a Tucson day, but plenty sizzle for a northwesterner. Lots of rocks, but beautiful. A good way to start if you haven't been hiking in a while.
