Mount Kimball Professional Review and Guide

"A day hike along Finger Rock Canyon to the summit of Mount Kimball, 5.1 miles one way.

This trail climbs to a high summit on Pusch Ridge, offering views of Finger Rock and a breathtaking overlook along the way. The trail begins by following the Finger Rock Trail northward through tall saguaros and prickly pears. The broken foothills soon give way to the steep cleft of Finger Rock Canyon, with the sheer walls of Prominent Point towering above it. Finger Rock points skyward atop the wall, one of the most distinctive landmarks in the Santa Catalinas. The trail crosses the stream-course at Finger Rock Spring and then begins a steep and rocky ascent of the eastern wall of the canyon."

This trail really seperates the men from the boys. Avoid winter weekends as the trail can be crowded.
