This scenic route takes you into the rugged Pusch Ridge Wilderness, in the Front Range of the Santa Catalina Mountains. Although the hike starts in the outskirts of Tucson, which has now spread right to the base of the mountains, a few minutes’ walking takes you from the sights and sounds of the city into a wilderness canyon. During the spring after snowmelt, the creek is often running, and later in the year there will still be seasonal pools, which are popular destinations during the hot months.
