Esperero Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"A backpack from the Cactus Picnic Area to Window Rock (8.5 miles one way) that intersects the Finger Rock and Ventana Canyon Trails at the 9.7-mile mark.

This trail climbs into the outer cordillera of the Santa Catalina Mountains, passing scenic landmarks that include Bridalveil Falls and Window Rock. From the Cactus Picnic Area, this trail runs northwest into the low foothills of the Santa Catalinas. After a short distance the path drops into the broad mouth of Rattlesnake Canyon. This basin is home to some of the most vigorous stands of saguaro in the range."
