Esperero Canyon Professional Review and Guide
"A backpack from the Cactus Picnic Area to Window Rock. This trail climbs into the outer cordillera of the Santa Catalina Mountains, passing scenic landmarks that include Bridalveil Falls and Window Rock.This basin is home to some of the most vigorous stands of saguaro in the range. The trail crosses the basin, mounts low hills to the west, then drops into Bird Canyon. Look for hummingbirds here when the ocotillos and desert honeysuckles are in bloom. This draw bears the traveler into the mountains, climbing at a steady pace as grasses and upland shrubs appear among the cacti."
