This hike leads to a collection of popular seasonal pools in Romero Canyon, starting from Catalina State Park and heading into the Pusch Ridge Wilderness in the Coronado National Forest. Seasonal pools such as these tend to occur in deep canyons where the additional shade helps keep the water from evaporating. In desert mountain ranges, such temporary pools are important water sources for wildlife, which may come from miles around. Hikers can use the water as well but should observe a few commonsense courtesies. Take only the water you need, and use it sparingly for all purposes except drinking. Never bathe in a pool or pollute it with soap or food scraps.
