A backpack along the spine of Oracle Ridge. This trail follows the crest of a long ridge that extends northward from the Santa Catalina Range. The ridge offers sweeping views of the Galiuro Mountains and the San Pedro Valley over much of its length, as well as views of the closer peaks of the Santa Catalinas, highlighted by the Reef of Rock. There are no water sources along the ridgetop, although travelers can drop from the ridgeline to reach several springs that may hold water.
