Romero Ruin Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"An interpretive loop through Hohokam and early Spanish ruins, 0.7 mile round-trip.

This short trail crosses Sutherland Wash to provide an interpretive loop through the ruins of a Hohokam Indian village. The Hohokam are thought to be the ancient forebears of the Tohono O’odham and contemporaries of the Anasazi. In contrast to their cliff-dwelling neighbors to the north, the Hohokam built villages on the flats."

If you are expecting another Mesa Verde or Montezuma's Castle, you will be very disappointed. There really are not many ruins to see. However, it is a very pleasant hike that is suitable for all ages and abilities, in a State Park that offers many other hiking options. The best feature of this area are the views of the Catalina Mtns., especially in the morning. Great picture-taking area.
