This is a dramatic hike up Sabino Canyon and its West Fork to Hutch’s Pool in the Front Range of the Santa Catalina Mountains and the Pusch Ridge Wilderness. The pools are a popular seasonal destination and are most likely to have water in the spring or early summer after a wet winter. From the last shuttle stop in Sabino Canyon, hike north on the Sabino Canyon Trail, which climbs 0.1 mile to meet the Phoneline Trail. Stay left and follow the Sabino Canyon Trail north along the east side of Sabino Canyon to Sabino Basin. Sabino Basin, the confluence of the East and West Forks of Sabino Canyon, is a popular camp spot and the start of several trails that head into the Santa Catalina high country to the north.
