    We did the Old Baldy Trail in perfect weather. My wife is 5 months pregnant and found the elevation change a bit rough, but in non-pregnancy days, this would have been a moderate trail. Definitely do it clockwise from the trailhead at the parking area. We messed up and did it counter-clockwise and the ascent was pretty steep (2 hrs up, 1 hr down). The clockwise direction has a gentler incline.

    This was a very nice trail, though, with great vistas. Highly recommend, and despite it being Memorial Day, it wasn't totally overrun.

    We only hiked to Josephine Saddle. 6.2 miles round trip took us about 4.5 hours. Pretty steady grade makes the trail not too difficult. There were many great views of Santa Cruz Valley on the way up to Josephine Saddle. Route provided more shade than I expected, at least 50% of hike. Sprung Spring was not too impressive and useless for drinking water. Many trail maps have wrong distance between Sprung Spring and Josephine Saddle--it's only 0.2 miles. We took Old Baldy trail down to save some time--a good idea although it is a rockier trail.

    Great running trail. The holly and wild rose can cause a few problems above 8000' if you are in shorts (I was), but overall a well-designed trail with good grade. Made it to the top in 1:58:54, descended the Old Baldy Trail (also very nice--less sun exposure). The fire damage is a pity, but part of the experience.

    It is hard to believe this hike is in the desert. It seems more like a Colorado hike. The first 2/3 is very wooded, with the last 1/3 being steep and rocky. Pack a small recorder for great 360 view at top. Remains of an old fire spotting station can be found. Make it an over night trip if you can and set up camp at Josephine saddle. If you can't, start before 0600 to beat the lower elevation heat. Temp at night at camp was mid forties. Put this on your to do list if in the Tucson area. P.S. plenty of water at Sprung Spring on Super Trail.

    This is an awsome hike. There is not many places with a 360 degree view like this one. The trail is well maintained. Near the top it does get a little slick so watch your footing. This is excellent to get out of the heat in the Tucson area.

    Long, steep, and beautiful. The hike from Wrightson saddle to the top is wonderful.. wild flowers and great views.
