Description

The trail starts at the Mt. Lemmon Recreation Area at the top of Ski Valley Road and heads along the fence of the power substation. From there, it travels out along the edge of the University of Arizona observatory. The trail then meanders through the meadows and is generally smooth and open with a couple of descents thrown in sporadically. It ends at the junction with Mount Lemmon Trail #5. The trail is well-marked at each trail junction.
