This has been my favorite hike so far in 2013. This not so easy hike begins from the Sabino Canyon visitor center and climbs gradually for about 1.5 miles. After reaching the Phone Line trail/Blackett's ridge junction its a hilly 1 mile climb up the ridge. the remaining half mile winds along the ridge until you are atop some mighty steep cliffs and the trail can go no further. There is an excellent view of Thimble Peak and looking back towards Tucson you can see for miles.

I came across many lizards while out hiking including some very colorful collared lizards. There was a daring roadrunner who zoomed right past me right outside the Visitor center which wrapped my trip up nicely.
