An alternative route to the summit of Mount Kimball, using the trail up Finger Rock Canyon. This trail is shorter than the Pima Canyon Trail. From the Finger Rock Trailhead, walk a few feet north up the road to the Finger Rock Trail, which heads north along the national forest boundary into the mouth of spectacular Finger Rock Canyon. The trail climbs the gentle slopes at the mouth of the canyon through typical Lower Sonoran vegetation—catclaw, mesquite, and saguaro and cholla cacti. Special Considerations: This hike has 4,110 feet of elevation gain. Carry plenty of water during the hot summer months as the trail stays well above the canyon bottom with little access to seasonal water.
