Mount Lemmon Trail #5 Professional Reviews and Guides

"A backpack from the top of Mount Lemmon to Romero Pass, 6.3 miles one way.

This trail drops from the heights of Mount Lemmon all the way down to the divide between Romero Canyon and the west fork of Sabino Canyon. It meets the Sutherland and Wilderness of Rock Trails along the way, allowing short loop trips or extended hikes that end in Catalina State Park, below the western slope of the range. The trail’s end allows access into Romero Canyon and the Sabino Basin, offering further possibilities for backpackers."
