Description

This trail has great views of Tucson, and is an easy escape from the city to get into the desert.

Look for the trail at the northern end of the parking lot. The trail starts going uphill within the first quarter mile and gains a ridgeline before dropping down to a tank. It then climbs up to a saddle and gains a false summit before reaching a plateau before the final climb to the summit. The last half mile up to the summit is steep and has loose rocks. Be especially careful on the way down.

Good trail. Mostly intermediate until the last mile or so then becomes more difficult but worth the views at the top. 9mi — 4h 30m
