It's sort of a run of the mill hike. If it wasn't so long it would be fine for little people.

This is a good Hike for Arizona. I guess I'm spoiled from Colorado. If your in Tucson and you need something to do outside, this isn't a bad hike. The water at the "waterfalls" is refreshing once you get there. Be advised, if your expecting an actual waterfall when you get there you'll be sadly disappointed. Overall, this hike is okay. It might be 5 stars for Arizona, but most certainly isn't worth 5 stars in comparison to the places I've seen in my lifetime.

I was visiting relatives in Tucson and did this trail early on a weekend morning. I went 9 miles round trip and didn't really encounter too many people until the end. It was around 9:30 am. Very nice and not a difficult run. Loved the stream crossings.

This was a spectacular hike, very quiet and secluded. We didn't really encounter any other hikers until we reached the falls. Bring PLENTY of water. Also, check the tram schedule ahead of time. We missed the tram and, rather than waiting a half hour for the next one, chose to take on the extra mileage (which wasn't a big deal because it was a beautiful walk) but you'll probably be quite thankful for the lift back.

Watch for snakes. Sadly, dogs are not permitted on this trail (or most trails in Tucson for that matter).

Very busy but nice! Difficult for my 9 year old but the water was awesome! The trail was hard to find at times but others in the trail were really nice to help. Bring lots of water and sunscreen for sure. Tons of people were hiking that were NOT prepared to hike. I'm not sure why they were attempting such a hike wearing dresses and moccasins with no water. They were obviously not from America and I really hope they didn't get hurt or sick.

This is a must do for anybody. The grand finale (the falls) is one of those things you have to see. The first 2 miles is a road march for a lack of better term, but there is a side trail that runs along side the road that you can take, and I would recommend it. The 7 water crossings aren't bad at all and you can just rock hop across. There was one that it was hard to tell where to go on the opposite side, but I forgot which one, sorry! Right before you make the last river crossing there is a good spot to rest a bit, maybe have a snack and enjoy the view and sound of some small waterfalls.

The few switchbacks after the last crossing mean you are almost there and the elevation gain is gradual. You have a great overlook of the falls right before you descend to them. The water was pretty darn cold a few days ago. It definitely takes your breath away if you decide to get in it!

There was a lot of traffic on this trail, as to be expected. But it's worth it! I read some contradicting reports, but dogs are NOT allowed on this trail. I tracked 8.2 miles overall on this trail.
