“One of the finest trails in the Catalinas to an amazing set of waterfalls and pools.”— Nick Wilder
If the tram is running (it is closed in 2018), take it to the farthest point in Bear Canyon. If you want a longer hike, don't want to pay for the tram, or it remains closed, you'll need to add an additional 1.4 miles of easy hiking (on trail or road, your choice) each way.
If it has recently rained, the stream crossings might be dangerous or impossible. Hiking poles will help. In general, the first two crossings are the trickiest.
While none of these seven waterfalls are that tall (the largest not more than about 20 feet), they are beautiful sights in the desert landscape. The water flows across the slick rock forming a number of small pools. The place is perfect for sunbathing, or, if you want, you can climb up the rock cliffs to the next fall.
