Oro Valley, Arizona, United States
Hiking | 5.8 miles (14.1 miles away)
Twelve of us hiked this roughly 6 mile trail to the Romero Pools. As the pictures show, the water was flowing nicely - which isn't the usual case here in the Sonoran Desert.

by gbonnema on Nov 23, 2007
Tucson, Arizona, United States
Hiking | 9.0 miles (8.0 miles away)
This trail heads up the Finger Rock Canyon and intersects the Pima Canyon Trail at Mount Kimball. Starting at an elevation of 3000 ft, this is a tough hike with a gain in elevation greater than 4000 ft in approximately four miles. However, the trail is well worth the effort with great views of the Finger Rock Canyon and the city of Tucson. At an elevation of 7255 ft, Mount Kimball offers...

Pontotoc Canyon Trail
by BlujnsNPearls on Mar 21, 2010
Tucson, Arizona, United States
Hiking | 5.1 miles (8.0 miles away)
This trail head starts at the same place as the Finger rock trail head. Where those trails intersect you will stay to the right. You will cross water on several occasions. There are stepping stones in place to facilitate your crossing. We enjoyed great views of Tucson valley, Finger rock and other ridges in the Catalinas. The rock formations are quite varied in colors and composition. Considerable amounts of mica and quartz gave...

This hotel has just completed construction and the entrance to the trail from this point is not well established. ...

Sweetwater Trail to the Sonoran Desert Museum
by BlujnsNPearls on May 02, 2009
Tucson, Arizona, United States
Hiking | 6.3 miles (12.4 miles away)
This Trail Begins at the end of Camino del Cerro.  It is a low level hike so can be very hot and with little shade.  This day would have been to warm but  we were having an unseasonably cool weekend so I decided to go because of the Saguaro and prickley pear were in bloom.  It was not disappointing.  The trail is rather rocky and is a workout for the knees and...

Phoneline Trail Hike
by gbonnema on Nov 18, 2007
Tucson, Arizona, United States
Hiking | 12.5 miles (8.6 miles away)
This is a hike starting at the Sabino Canyon Visitor Center. Most of the trail is on the east side of the canyon. The trail was well maintained. It only became somewhat overgrown after the northern most waypoint. Expect lots of crowds near the trailhead on weekends. Further along the trail, I passed other hikers approximately every 30 minutes. Although there was 2000 feet gain in elevation, most of this gain was...

Romero Canyon and Loop trail
by BlujnsNPearls on Mar 28, 2010
Tucson, Arizona, United States
Hiking | 6.5 miles (14.1 miles away)
Catalina State Park has several trails you can take from the parking lot.  This day we did two of them.  The Romero Canyon trail to the pools.  On the way back we did the loop trail as well.  It was a very nice day and the wildflowers were  beginning to give a show.  As a result there were many, many people on the trail.

Hiking | 7.9 miles (9.1 miles away)
Went on a hike with some friend. Very easy hike. Water was flowing so there were some tricky river crossings but very little elevation change. Great hike. Bring lots of water during the summer.
