The first half of the trail was somewhat tame with lots of foot traffic in both directions - a good warm-up for the legs at best. Once we got closer to the switchback, the overall quality of the hike definitely increased as the crowed thinned out, the terrain got a little more challenging and the appeal of the scenery improved. Once we got to the "falls" (pools of water), though, it was all worth it. We took our boots off and gave our feet a dip in the cool water, which was a real treat. We actually hiked barefoot from the bottom up to the 3rd pool. Very nice spot to stop, rest and have a snack before hiking out. Round trip it took us about 2 1/2 hrs.

A great hike! If you do not feel like ending at 7 falls, you can continue up the trail and into back country. Much fewer hikers.

Just hiked this trail last week and it was amazing. I measured this hike using the tracker icon starting from the visitor center to the falls and it came out to 4.6 miles. For the first 1/4 of the trail stay on the paved road because it's easier and has less people. The next 2/4 is an easy and beautiful hike along the creek bed. You have to cross the creek about 4 times until it starts going up the side of the mountain. There's some switchbacks and you have to climb along the mountain side for the rest 1/4 of the trail. When you reach the end of the trail the 7 waterfalls are amazing. The water is shallow and very cold but feels good after a long hike.

The scenery is beautiful as you walk through the canyon . You'll encounter a few water-stream crossings along the way, most are easy to cross. Near Seven Falls, the trail splits with a sign that reads Bear Canyon, continue on the left-hand trail which will lead you down near the base of Seven Falls. This is a great place to take pictures, or just sit and relax. It took about 2 hours to get there from the parking lot. I would also recommend going early to avoid crowds.

Pretty much one of Tuscons best hikes. I do agree that at some parts, the trail lacks proper markers, but I don't believe that warrants a three star review! The trail itself, has great wildlife that thrive on the running (or standing) water of the ravine. At the end crack some beers and enjoy what water is at the falls before heading back. P.S. technically no alcohol allowed in this park and the rangers aren't too friendly about it, so just throw them in your pack until your isolated on the trail.

First time on this trail as we are visiting from Colorado. Went in November. Weather was perfect and the hike was beautiful despite no falls (just standing water). The only issue we had was that the trail is poorly marked at a few of the water crossings. We wasted at least 30 minutes trying to pick up the trail. Does Arizona not believe in placing cairns to mark their trails??

Great scenery easy hike. The people here were not very friendly. When you start out it will be on pavement. then straight up the valley. We asked if we were following the right track and the fellow hiker, which were students just laughed and nod. Not a good first impression.
