Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This trail starts from near the first parking area on General Hitchcock Highway, also known locally as Mount Lemmon Road. The trail climbs steadily but has no very steep sections, and the views of both the vegetation and the mountains are rewarding.

The waterfall at the end is dry for most of the year; try to get there early on August mornings after the monsoons or in February and March during snowmelt to see water flowing."

"A day hike from the Catalina Highway to the pass above Molina Canyon, 2.1 miles one way. Babad Du’ag means “Frog Mountain” in the Tohono O’odham language, a term describing the Santa Catalina Mountains as a whole. This trail offers a relatively short but taxing hike through cactus forest and oak grassland in the foothills of the Santa Catalinas, a good option when foul weather at higher elevations closes the high country. To begin the hike, walk eastward up the Santa Catalina Highway for a few dozen yards to reach the trail marker." Read more
