My dog Alexis and I had a great hike! She loved all the water! A very nice hike. The water crossings were low and easy. A very relaxing day. I can't wait to go again!

Great scenery. Hidden Valley could use a few cairns to show the way. We built a couple.

This is a fun hike wild flowers were in bloom. I didn't do photos of the hot springs only because it should be experienced....Go on this hike take a friend .... Jump in the river!

It wasn't very close to the river at all, and you couldn't see it for most of the trail.

A beautiful hike, although I would rate on the more moderate spectrum than easy, as there are a few steep rock scrambles, and loose rocks. Some forks could be better marked, look for the cairns though. Took us slightly less than 3 hours. Not much traffic for a Tuesday. We really enjoyed the flowering flora and the views along the way.

We did this hike twice on recent trip to Tucson. Valley temps were 90's so great way to escape the heat! I would hike counter-clockwise for nice trek following a stream through the woods. About mid-point You can detour on the Wilderness of Rocks trail (as out and back) for some other views. On the backside there were a few big views. The last part of the decent is rocky and a bit steep. Probably more shade once the leaves come out in spring. This is a busy location so arrive early for parking.
Note: The actual trail does not match up to the Forest Service trail shown on Garmin hiking GPS. The trail is obvious but if you are following the Garmin it will give some doubt the first time you do this trail.

We hiked counter-clockwise from the picnic area. Much of the hike is on old forest road which is extremely rocky and hard on feet and ankles. Going up there is some shade and nice hike along a stream. Final assent to Kent spring is tough! Coming down the back is gentler trail and you get some great big views. The springs are nothing special....just man made catch basins.

Great loop hike with big views along the way. I would recommend hiking counter-clockwise beginning on the old forest road. This way your assent is on the steep rocky trail and decent on a longer moderate switchbacks. Be aware there is zero shade along the trail! Top can be windy. There are a couple of partly shady nooks at the top for a lunch spot.
