This hike started out at Box Camp Trail Head and I walked along Catalina Highway to the Palisades Trail. From the Palisade Trail to East Fork Sabino Canyon Trail to East Sabino Canyon Trail to the Phoneline trail and finally to the visitors Center. The hike was mainly down hill (6127 feet) but it is long. There are great views all along the trail but particularly on the Palisade Trail. This was my first time on the Palisade Trail and I thought it was impressive. Normally I prefer to hike uphill, it's easier on the knees and feet but on this hike I'm glad I chose top to bottom. Since this trail follows along ridges and high along canyons there wasn't much water along the way. The exception was Mud spring on the Palisade Trail and east Fork Sabino Canyon. The Palisade Trail was easy to follow and fairly well maintained. The other trails are more heavily traveled and I consider them super highways. Bring a camera and take lots of pictures.
