For some reason I semi-forgot how amazing the Santa Cantalinas are and this canyon was a real eye-opener. I was drooling and having trouble staying in my lane as I was driving to the TH due to the spectacular and craggy canyons of the southwestern Cantalinas. The weather was perfect for hiking in the front range, not too hot or cold. Other than being very scenic and popular, this trail just climbs and climbs. This would be an awesome Grand Canyon trainer. Once you pass the Linda Vista overlook the crowds quickly fade away. On the way up, the saguaros slowly disappear and become spruce trees instead. The 270° view from Mt. Kimball is absolutely stunning, one of the best I've seen in the area. Too bad I can't post movies in the photo album. On top it was breezy and a tad chilly, so come prepared this time of year. I can't wait to come back and try some of the other canyons in the area. 8)
