Bitter on the uphill, sweet on the slightly exposed ridgeline descent.

Description

Bittersweet branches off of the Camaro Loop in the south and the Sunset Pass Trail in the north. This trail traverses some serious topography for Tucson Mountains standards. The climbs are slightly technical due to the rocks, but 100% doable.
