Using the Douglas Spring Trail, this hike takes you to a seasonal waterfall in the foothills of the Rincon Mountains. The falls are most likely to be running during the spring after a wet winter. The falls are seasonal, and the best chances to see them running are after snowmelt in March and April, or after a thunderstorm during late summer. From the Douglas Spring Trailhead, hike east on the Douglas Spring Trail across the Sonoran Desert plain. Numerous trails branch right in this section; stay left on the Douglas Spring Trail at all of them. The easy section ends as the trail turns southeast and begins climbing a ridge in the foothills of the Rincon Mountains. Look back frequently for good views of the Tucson valley and, to the northwest, the Santa Catalina Mountains.
