"Swinging through the foothills of the Rincon Mountains in Saguaro National Park, this loop starts at the Douglas Spring Trailhead and uses the Douglas Spring, Three Tanks, Carrillo, and Garwood Trails to sample this fine piece of Sonoran Desert. An optional side trip leads to Bridal Wreath Falls, a seasonal waterfall."
