Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"A backpack to the crest of the Santa Rita Mountains, 7.4 miles one way. From its beginnings at the north end of the range, the Florida Canyon Trail climbs aggressively to reach the crest of the Santa Ritas. Florida (floh-REE-duh) Canyon is Spanish for “flowered.” An optional trek along the Santa Rita Crest Trail leads to Baldy Saddle, providing an alternate route to the summit of Mount Wrightson. The route up Florida Canyon has northern exposure, and its final pitch is shaded by climax coniferous forest. As a result, this trail offers one of the cooler routes to the high country at the top of the Santa Ritas."
