We did the first dam what was 4.1 miles, a very pleasurable walk and easy access, good parking and just enough grade to raise the heart beat, fun! Pack food and water and make a day out of it!

Pima cyn trail starts easy enough and allows fun hike with family. After a few hours, it gets much steeper and hiking sticks advised. With enough time, a great hike is to climb up finger rock to Kimball and then down the Pima Cyn wall...More
