Start at the La Milagrosa Ridge Trail Head and follow La Milagrosa Ridge Trail up about 2.5 miles then head south on a trail that goes toward Agua Caliente Creek. This trail will cross Agua Caliente Creek for a short distance and exit on the south side. Once on the other side and up on the flats there is a trail that heads west that is the La Milagrosa Agua Caliente Trail, this trail will take you back to the starting point. Before I head back I will continue south along the trail to a small Saddle were the Agua Caliente Peak Trail is, this will be my turn around point. From here I will head back to where the La Milagrosa Agua Caliente Trail is and follow that back along the South side of Agua Caliente Creek.

This hike is another one of those that even though I lived here all my life, I have never been on. I missed out, better late than never as they say. This is a nice loop trail that can be done in the winter months or early morning in late spring (April May). Good views around lower Agua Caliente Creek before it enters the Tucson Valley. The trail is easy to follow and not a lot of extended ups or downs. At the time I was here both La Milagrosa and Agua Caliente Creeks were flowing.
