A day hike or backpack up Pima Canyon to Mt. Kimball. As the trail penetrates deeper into the canyon, towering walls of metamorphic rock guard the rims, and the vegetation grades from low desert cactus forest to desert grassland. The canyon walls draw apart, then constrict to form a steep and rock-walled valley. The last of the big cacti fall away as the path rounds a stony hillock and then begins to climb along the east wall of the canyon. A great prow of stone divides the canyon ahead, and at its base are good exposures of banded gneiss. Water can often be found on the surface in this reach of the canyon. The main path climbs across the summit of Kimball Peak to reach a ledge perched above a hair-raising dropoff. Mount Kimball is not an imposing peak, but by virtue of its strategic location it commands views in all directions around its summit. The most striking vista is to the east, where the rugged crests of Window and Cathedral rocks rise in front of forested Mount Lemmon.
