Mount Lemmon Trail #5 Professional Reviews and Guides
"A backpack from the top of Mount Lemmon to Romero Pass. Hikers will encounter a wide spectrum of life zones along the route, ranging from lush conifer forest to arid scrubland. The magnificent granite towers of Mount Lemmon are visible from the trail, and a short excursion into the Wilderness of Rock finds even more unusual formations of stone."
