We did this hike 2 years ago and it was interesting to see how much the trail changed. From Catalina State Park to Romero Pools it was the same but above the pools the trail has deteriorated significantly. There were quite a few significant wash out sections, lots of tree fall across the trail, and overgrowth. On the plus side there was a ton of water in Romero. So it was slower going up to Romero Pass but once on Mount Lemmon Trail #5 no issues. Took a break at great lookout spot near WOR turn off before continuing on to Radio Ridge. At the turn off for Sutherland we decided to add more AEG and mileage by dropping down to Shovel Spring. Checked out the spring and took a nice break before heading back up to Radio Ridge. Part way up Radio Ridge before the parking lot our friend and ride back to Catalina State Park met us with cold beverages :D Once at the TH we headed for The Sawmill in Summer Haven for eats.
