This hike starts at the Chivo Falls parking area along Redington Road. The route I take to Chivo Falls has been the same for the last 50 years. It is a combination of two tracks and cross country, leading to the coral at the junction of Tanque Verde Creek and Joaquin Creek. From there it's a short jaunt to Chivo falls. The falls was flowing better than I have seen it in a long time(just went at the wrong times). From Chivo Falls I take the two track up toward Anillo Tank and head west for about .5 miles along the two track. From here I take a cross country route along a ridge east of Canyon Del Pino for about .5 miles then head west across a small creek toward Canyon Del Pino. The rest of the route to Douglas Spring follows along the east side of Canyon Del Pino.
It was a nice time of year to do this hike, there was water everywhere. Not sure whether this cross country route is allowed anymore because for the last .75 miles you are in Saguaro National Park. The policy use to be you were allowed to hike along streams when not on a trail. The last I heard this is not allowed. Not sure if this just pertains to certain areas in the park.
