excellent hike with the cool refreshing pools at the end. bring plenty of water.
unfortunately this is NOT a dog friendly trail. the "canyon loop trail" on which you start the hike (located in catalina state park) allows dogs. when you get to the "romero canyon trail" intersection it states no dogs allowed. this is a protected wildlife area particularly for big horn sheep. also note that there is a big horn sheep closure period from january - april.
this is a well traveled trail for good reason. it gives a fine panoramic view of the western slope of tucson and a cooling toe dip in the pools. the trail does continue on and will eventually get you to the top of mt. lemmon. a topo map from the local guide shops (summit hut) in tucson will come in handy.
