Take note of the first 100 yards of the trail. Much of the trail is just like this. lol Deserving of it's "difficult" Falcon rating but, well worth the difficulty. Get an early start but, do not attempt any portion of this trail in the dark even with a flashlight. View, flora, fauna and geology are fantastic! My favorite near Tucson hike thus far. Travel light and carry plenty of water if you intend to hike this trail in the summer months. Pay attention to your footfalls. There are plenty of blind spots for the rattlesnakes to lounge in. Don't make any commitments that your body can't keep. If you hike down into a canyon remember that you have to hike back up :) Photography notes: A wide angle lense and polarization filter are a must for the DSLR toting photographer who intends to capture the true beauty of this canyon. There are bighorn sheep in the area so a good telephoto lense may come in handy as well (keeping in mind of course my warning to travel light).
