A nice, quick, steep little leg-burner. The Echo Canyon parking area & trail are closed for improvements & parking expansion through Fall and Winter 2013. It's ok though, just take the Cholla trail that you can access via E Cholla Lane.

Challenging, fun, yet rewarding view at the top. Best landscape view in all of Phoenix!

Very nice hike near Starr Pass. It's a paved road so not as much a feeling of being on a hiking trail, but it's a preserve so there are many plants and trees. Plus the views of the city are terrific!

This trail is beautiful! It is well marked and easy to navigate to your destination. Depending on when you go you can indulge in wild raspberries. The views are breathtaking.

Cape Final

Great trail with a moderate incline on the way in and decline on the way out. At the top there are great views of the Grand Canyon available from several rock outcroppings. The first mile and a half is through a shaded forest area without much of a view, but the shade was nice. The last half mile was well worth the effort.

Inner Basin Trail

We took the Inner Basin Trail from Lockett Meadow connecting to the Weathorford trail and on to the 'Saddle" below Humphrey's Peak. The Snowbowl road was closed due to a Climb for the Cure Cancer walk. Even though the distance is roughly twice the Humphrey's trail it was well worth it! You start about 1K feet lower and the views from that side are amazing. It was a nice change after seeing the Humphrey's trail more than a few times. The Aspens and ferns were so perfect you thought you were looking at a picture.

Sunrise Peak

This might be an ok trail during the day. I started i around 4:30 in the morning just to make sure to get to the crest in time for the sunrise. The trail is ok i guess. But the sunrise coming up right next to Four Peaks was amazing. it is 2.5 miles to the crest. I was told it was a 2.5 mile loop so I was not expecting to hike that much so early in the morning.

Wet Beaver Creek Trail

Good hike and very scenic after about 1.5 miles in. The red rock is beautiful and plenty of areas to do some rock climbing. Not sure if its allowed but we did it making sure to leave a minimal to no impact. Once you get to "The Crack" there is some great cliff jumping into ice cold spring water. Makes for a great day. Hike is very easy and the elevation is minimal. My friend and i switched off carrying a cooler with a case of beer and fresh fruit.

Starr Pass Trail

Very nice, scenic trail close to the Starr Pass neighborhood and 10 minutes from downlown Tucson. We made a shorter 2.5 mile loop by taking the Starr Pass trailhead off Clearwell road down .4 mile to the Rock Wren trail. One mile down this trail, it connects with the Yetman trail both left and right. But a sharp right takes you on an unnamed trail back to the trailhead parking lot.

Canyon Loop Trail - Catalina State Park

Hiked with the family today. Started around 10:30 but was still fine...beautiful flowers all along the beginning grade and lush almost alpine looking meadows due to the recent rains. The canyon drop took us into the fast stream, good for a quick cool down, which the kids loved.

Great time!
