Starts by some houses area in North Tucson and goes up into the U.S. Forest Service - Santa Catalina Natural Area. Beautiful hike and easy to get out of the city without a long drive. Worth a visit if visiting town.

First, I'll start out by saying I am not a hiker. This trail is enjoyable and I did fine on it. My favorite time to go is in when the temperature is 60*, or below because I am not a fan of snakes. Wonderful photography,...More

Finger Rock, is a beautiful trail. It is mildly challenging but not overly exerting. There are beautiful rocks and flowers to see and if you're lucky, there will be water to stop and play in. Its a very good day hike, in and out. A...More

It certainly took some energy to make it to the top, but it was definitely worth it! Fantastic views on the way up and beautiful spot at the top of Mt Kimball, about a 1/4 mile beyond the summit sign.

This is an excellent local hike with such a beautiful opportunity to get close to a rock formation that is visible in the mountain silhouettes of Tucson...You may noticed it already, and yes you can climb to this finger that looks like a middle finger...More

Know your way, the trail to the base of the finger is hard to find so know your way, the main trail goes on for 12 miles and splits to the saddle.. Hard hike, great views.

Instead of keeping your eyes on the trail and moving, we stopped to enjoy the gorgeous view. We saw a Big Horn Sheep, grazing on the mountain side, a snake with an yellow ring around its neck. Interesting! And of course, lizards. It was tough...More

We went up with John from SW Trekking, which was far and away the highlight of our 10 day holiday. Really beautiful canyon with stunning views. Quite steep in parts. Loads of flora and fauna to be seen.

Great day hike. Easy access makes this a very popular trail. Uphill all the way to Mt Kimball. The first mile is gentle but then start climbing steeply. Spectacular views, very rugged. Be careful on the decent since dirt and sand makes the rocks slippery....More

Pleasant hike with amazing display of cactuses. Heard last 1/3 is tougher, and wish we had made it, but wife saw a snake, so that was it, back we went. Very easy to get to.
