Like other routes in the Santa Catalina Mountains, the Romero Canyon Trail begins at the base of the range but eventually climbs to its upper reaches. The canyon itself is quite rugged and beautiful, and a surprising variety of flora is encountered.

A superior hike with great views. As with most scenic trails around Tucson, start early since the trail goes west to east and you are facing the sun basically the whole way up. This trail is very rocky once it leaves Catalina State Park and is not for the very novice hiker. Catalina Park also has several nice trails suitable for family hikes.
