This trail is an alternative route to popular Wasson Peak using the King Canyon and Sweetwater Trails. This hike takes you up the south slopes of the Tucson Mountains, then up the very scenic east ridge of Wasson Peak to the summit. Two trails leave the parking area; head northeast on the King Canyon Trail, an old mining road. In several places you can see elaborate cut stonework done during the construction of this road.
