Box Camp Trail

Box Camp Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A backpack from the Catalina Highway to the Sabino Basin. This trail runs from the crest of the Santa Catalinas to the bottom of the Sabino Basin. It follows a ridgetop for most of its length, and offers good views as well as opportunities for wildlife viewing that improve as the trail penetrates the wilderness.

The track is well beaten and obvious at its upper end, but becomes overgrown below Apache Spring. Travelers are advised to hike this part of the route in the downhill direction, because the trail was almost impossible to pick up from the lower end at the time of this writing."
