Canyons are inherently risky. Flash floods occur without notice on sunny days. Technical skills & surrounding topography knowledge required yet does not eliminate risk.

Waterman Peak is a 1.3 mile one way canyon trip with 1,246 feet elevation gain. Located 35 miles west-northwest of Tucson Arizona. September and October are the best months to enjoy this activity. This hike involes off trail navigation. Review triplogs, photos and the route to understand the terrain before heading out.

Overview: Beautiful views of Tucson and surrounding mountain ranges.

There will be a "No OHV" sign, park near here. Hike up old jeep trail to Silver Mine. This is great place to take photos, especially black and white. Trail stops here and some hiking involves personal judgment and bushwhacking. I hiked the south/southwest side of the peak through a gap on the eastern side of the peak. There is a natural ramp up to the top. Great views besides Silverbell Mine and a small mining project on the NW side.
