What an incredible area! There's nothing like this anywhere else that I have seen, except for the upper part of Cathedral Rock which is only for very hardcore hikers (hiked that ONCE). Some of the hoodoos are quite amazing. I often wonder how they were formed and how they don't fall over. I have been to this area at least 2 times and know of 3 good ways to get there. The easiest is probably via the Mint Spring trail from Summerhaven. A more difficult/steeper, but shorter route would be via the Marshall Gulch trail. And lastly, the Lemmon Rock Loop trail starts at Mt Lemmon and does a huge 8.4 mile loop passing through at least 60% of the Wilderness of Rock area. This Lemmon Rock Loop trail is the route I took on this day and I would highly recommend it for anyone who has the energy. On a different trip a few years ago, we found some swimming areas that were just too tempting. We had to take a dip!
