Great easy to follow trail with some good views and wonderful scenic adventure. Love this trail for a good workout. Hot in the summer though at the low levels. Some nice historical sites halfway up. Enjoy a really intense hike on the Traverse.

For a quick hike head to Pima Canyon north of town. Go early because it gets hot mid day and take plenty of water. Enjoy the cacti and watch out for snakes.

Never did find the dam but enjoyed all the scenery around us. Nice short day hikes! Go early to avoid the afternoon sun.

I've done many hikes around Tucson. This is one of my least favorite. The early trail offers some fine views of Tucson. Then there is a great deal of trail through the scrub and limited views either forward or backward. You have to go quite...More
