Overview

Nestled in the northern foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains is one of the truly outstanding and challenging trails near Tucson. The trail begins in a lush riparian area and slowly climbs up and out of the canyon onto a ridge, increasing altitude until you reach the hair-raising steep hill climb leading to the summit. The serious obstacles have been removed by trail maintenance, rendering the trail less challenging. You should be able to complete this trail in under two hours. If you love Arizona scenery and don't mind a little effort to get to it, this is the trail for you!
