This trail is a rite of passage for young Tucsonans and University of Arizona students for whom the Seven Falls take on an almost-mythical status. During weekends in spring and fall, flat rocks and shallow pools at the base of the falls are surrounded by scores of semi-clad sunbathers, some of whom scramble up unsanctioned routes on either side of the lower falls. The ribbon-like cascades aren’t very big, even after rains, but there are seven of them if you count the one below the pools, and they certainly are attractive when in full spate. From mid- May to July, the falls dry out completely.
