I tried this hike shortly after some big summer rains earlier this year and the water was actually too high to make it up to the falls. Luckily, this second time that I visited the water level was perfect. I really love this hike. It's short but pretty challenging!

Trail was pretty busy but it seemed no one wanted to make the last climb over the rocks to the falls, so we had it mostly to ourselves.

Tanque Verde Falls is located on the east side of Tucson in the area known as Reddington Pass. I chose this hike for today primarily because it was relatively short and had good reviews from other hikers. I was hiking with a few others who I’m not sure had ever been hiking really before this and I thought it would be pretty straight forward. To get to the trail head is really not difficult. You basically take Tanque Verde east until it turns into Reddington. Eventually the pavement will end and you’ll be on dirt road for what couldn’t have been more than a mile. There’s signs clearly pointing the way to a parking area and the trailhead is directly south from there. The trail down into the canyon is very well defined and not difficult. Right away you’ll be greeted by huge metal signs explaining in a very long winded way that this area is very dangerous due to slippery rock, flash floods and of course the biggest danger humans being humans. Mosey on past the signs for a short steady decline to the stream bed. Once you’re at the bottom your destination is east by northeast up the stream bed. This is where this hike gets some points from me as it’s different than most Tucson area hikes. Rather than hiking along any kind of trail you’re literally hiking along the stream bed. This might conjure terrible images in your mind of trudging through big sandy washes which is what stream bed means everywhere else in the desert but this isn’t the case. Instead you’ll be navigating slick rock slabs and boulders most of the way. Using your hands for climbing and figuring out exactly which boulders to go over or around or between is really kind of fun. I wasn’t sure what the water situation would be since it hasn’t rained in quite a while and my understanding is that these waterfalls are fueled by mountain runoff. There wasn’t a lot is the short story. There were sporadic pools of water here and there the whole way up the canyon. Some of them seemed quite deep considering how small they were meaning water up to at least chest level if I were to actually go in them. The pools themselves seemed old and most of them had a fair amount of algae and so I avoided them. It might not be possible to avoid them however during wetter times. A short distance, but fair amount of time with the boulder navigation ,up the canyon you’ll get to the lower Tanque Verde Falls. This narrow rock canyon is pretty pleasant to rest at even without the falls actually running. The falls themselves were dried up but the pools that are notorious for cliff jumping are still there. They seemed fairly deep though the water is dark and murky and it’s hard to tell exactly how deep. Not exactly inviting for swimming and with soot on the rocks showing previous water levels definitely not for jumping off a cliff into. My friends stayed at the lower falls but I had to see what was up at the upper falls. To get between the two there’s no way up but to climb. Ordinarily the kind of climbing you do to get up there wouldn’t be a big deal but in this instance the rock is so smooth from the running water (when it is running) it’s really quite precarious and I would give my feeling of safety a 6 on a scale of 1 being “I’m going to die what am I doing up here?” to 10 being “oh this is easy”. I can only imagine what climbing this next to a running waterfall would be like. Probably not too bad since when the waterfall is actually running the pools probably inspire a much greater sense of a safety net. These pools, while they looked deep, inspired no such feelings. I did not want to go in there. After the short climb which was probably 30ft you get to the real deal. I imagine this upper area is really fantastic when that waterfall is going. This pool was much larger and deeper than the previous pools. I imagine there’s far less evaporation happening up there as the pool is surrounded by steep rock canyon on three sides. I still don’t know if would venture a swim. Something about still, dark, murky water gives me the willies and this water was still. I was afraid to touch it lest I awaken something lurking underneath or set off some kind of chain reaction. I’ll leave the swimming to the drunk college kids. Which brings me to the only real negative, aside from the water not running at all, about the hike. TRASH. It’s all over the place. It’s clear this hike is not for hikers so much as for younger ‘daredevils’. Don’t get me wrong the canyon is very pretty and the hiking bit is fun, but between the tagging on the rocks, the obvious remnants of party camping, and the trash I think I’ll be staying on hikes that are maybe a little more out of the way. The advantage to trail hiking is that for the most part the trails are established, maintained and used by people who love nature and have a strong desire to keep nature natural. This area is obviously used more for parties and drunken exhibitions of bravery. Which is fine, if that’s your thing I’m not going to tell you to not have a good time, but to see all the trash was just a huge turn off. I still count this as a good hike and I’m glad I saw Tanque Verde Falls. I don’t know that I’ll make my way out there any time soon again, at least not without the promise that a good rainstorm might bring.

First hike down the T.V. Falls with my wife, though have brought my son a couple of times before. Hot day, COLD water! I jumped in but couldn't stay in more than a few seconds, it was so cold it was painful! We were able to watch a male and female mallard duck enjoying themselves on a hot date just downstream a few feet the whole time we were there.

Great way to spend our 12th wedding anniversary :y:

Finished the day out by driving Reddington all the way around to San Manuel, and basically making a giant loop around the Catalinas in the Jeep.

Water very cold, some algae in spots but not bad yet, as the water is still flowing through pretty well. Expect it to start dropping off soon...

Took a second trip down the the falls to do a little swimming. Saw what looked like a dead tarantula floating on the water was it fell down the small waterfall, and when we pushed it away we realized it was alive taking a swim of his own. Ran into about a half-dozen others this time...the season is definitely winding down out there.

Took my son out here for some water fun and a campout overnight. Went all the way to the second waterfall. The first (smaller) waterfall was just a trickle, the larger waterfall farther out was not running at all. Were still several pools with water, but quite chilly. The shallower pools were a little warmer but had a good bit of algae and insects.

Camped out at the top there, with a nice night view of Tucson!

Not sure of the date, but Wendy and I tried to go swimming but it started raining when we got to the first fall so we hiked right back out. Drove to the AZT TH farther down Redington, was still raining and only 66 degrees! We were still soggy and cold from the previous rains, so instead of hiking we sat in the Jeep and listened to music while enjoying the rain and the views of the Rincons.

It was a friend's birthday in Tucson so he invited me down for a swimming party at his favorite swimming hole. I was a bit skeptical about how much water would be there but it sure did not disappoint. The falls weren't flowing but the pool was huge, deep, and cool. The ten of us spent all afternoon swimming, diving, lounging, and feasting. It was an awesome time. I still can't believe we had the whole place to ourselves all day-- on a hot Saturday. :)

Sirena and I celebrated the re-opening of the Catalina district by heading out to our most accessible and dependable swimming hole. Even at 6:30 when we got started it was already warm, and when we reached the canyon floor, I was seriously worried that my sweat glands would be providing the lions share of the moisture on this trip. The canyon was dryer than expected, with only a few stinky pools and no flow at all. We hoped conditions would improve up canyon, so we hiked on - and we were right (though we could never have guessed how right)!

Around 15 minutes up from that first small fall (you know, the one that stops most of the picnic hikers) we heard water running. It was a bit confusing as the creek bottom we were hiking in was bone dry. As we came up and over another rock pile, there was the creek coming toward us, literally. In what was probably the world's slowest flash flood, the creek was filling with water that likely fell on the mountain top in the monsoon storm yesterday evening! As we watched, the water filled one small pool after another, gradually making it's way into the the rivulets and then falls we were familiar with. It was magical to watch.

After a very brief discussion about the safety of heading upa narrow canyon while water levels were rising, we continued on. It was hot and sunny, no new water was going to fall while we were out, and we could easily outrun this flood even if we were in wheelchairs. We made it past the tight spot that we've come to call "The maneuver", though my new Merrel's were less than helpful there (I ended up barefoot). At the big pool, we had an impressively rushing waterfall, shade and lots of good swimming. The water was dirty - as is typical for early in the monsoon season - but the temperature was perfect and the floating was sweet. A little bit of heaven that the gov'ment just opened up for us again.

We started back when the sun told us it wasn't kidding around about the heat thing, around 9. As we hiked back it was fun to identify pools that had been dry or exceedingly low on our way up. Then we passed the flood. That's right, after more than an hour luxuriating at the pool and a slow return hike, we still passed the advance of the stream. We just couldn't get over it.

Just after we left the running water behind, we met our first hikers of the trip - a young group heading in search of swimming. We gave them our beta, shared some information about the Colorado toads that were infesting the pools, and promised them that there would be running water if they just went far enough -or- waited long enough.

By the time we hit the hill it was over 90 and with the canyon's added humidity, it was just icky. It just made the AC in Bu feel that much better on the way home...

Wendy and I were planning an uber-early start of 5am for a hike on the Alamo Springs loop in the Tortolitas for today. The night before, we found out that the fire closures in the Catalina district had been lifted and had to change our plans to a hike where we could take the floaties. We got hiking around 6:30 am and as we were going down the switchbacks to the bottom of the canyon, I spotted a curled-up diamondback right on the trail. The sides of the trail were covered in cactus and other nasty plants, limiting our options. It was early and the snake was barely awake, so we snuck by before it knew what was going on. Definitely got the heart beating a bit. It wasn't looking too promising for a swim, the canyon was as dry as I've seen it in a long time. The dry conditions made travel much easier than usual.

Wendy did a great job of describing the water slowly making its way down the canyon, it was pretty incredible to watch. I was pretty relieved to see that our pool wasn't stagnant and that the waterfall was flowing good and strong. After some quality floatie time, we made our way back and found an alternate route that goes up and around "the maneuver". It felt so good to know that our hiking options have opened up again.

This hike taught me that hiking shouldn't always be goal-oriented! The promise of the falls lured us, but despite rain the night before and recent reports of things flowing well, the lower falls were a pleasant trickle, while the upper falls were little more than a few wet spots on the rock (though you could see how the water at full force tumbling down the sheer rock wall must be impressive).

Rather, the real payoff of this hike is the gorgeous canyon that closes around you as you scramble up its creekbed. Had I been more aware of this starting out, I might have taken my time and enjoyed my surroundings and the challenge of negotiating the boulder-choked creekbed, rather than pushing to make the upper falls before we lost the light.

On the day of our hike the creek was little more than a series of shallow pools and small trickles. I've no idea whether this is normal for this site and season, or whether the water was unusually low. Not that this kept us from having to get wet in a few places - usually no more than knee-deep, but Sid did decide to wade right through a waist-deep pool at one point; I opted to keep picking my way through the rocks.

One thing I would note: If, like me, you have minimal bouldering experience, this hike *will* present you with challenges! Based on descriptions I read beforehand I was not totally prepared for the amount of scrambling, balancing, gripping, hauling, and at-times bewildering route-finding it would take to cover less than a mile of canyon floor. Perhaps it is easier when the water's higher? (But I can only imagine the challenge when the rocks are slippery!) Anyway, fortunately things mostly stayed at the level of "fun if unexpected challenge" for us, though there were a few scary moments. Forewarned, however, I would have allowed a lot more time for this hike, and probably taken more provisions: It took us a good 4-5 hours to make it back to the parking lot, and we hiked the switchbacks up to the rim in full darkness (lovely in its own way, with the saguaros silhouetted against the night sky and the near-full moon rising over the canyon rim). It would also have been nice to have time in the heat of the day to enjoy the pools and sandy patches on the canyon bottom - even at this early date the water was quite pleasant. I hope to return sometime in late summer/early fall to catch the falls at their peak!

Was a good easy hike. The elevation is pretty much all in the beginning of the hike as you go down into the canyon. We took someone with us that had recently had back surgery and we felt really bad as we didn't research it enough. I've learned now how to read the data on this site more that would of be good to know then. Nevertheless, I wish there was a little more water flowing, as it was pretty minimal.

Be cautious of where you drop down into the canyon onto the creek floor. When you are coming back, you can easily pass right by it. I think I added 3 miles as I had to chase after my buddy that was headed back to get back to his girlfriend a couple hundred yards in front of me. He skipped the trail back up to the parking lot and I literally had to huff it about 1.5m down the creek. At least I got a good cardio out of it. :)

The very top waterfall (the 70 footer) I feel takes some experience to get to. Admittedly, we didn't go up there because i had a bit of 'pucker factor' that I was not expecting. Also, since there isn't really a set trail once you get down into the wash/creek, you are doing a lot of rock hopping and you will get wet so just be prepared for that.

Very fun day hike!

Wendy and I met up for a before-work jaunt to Tanque Verde Falls. The falls were flowing well and the lone cottonwood is all leafed out and green.

Beauty day - not quite warm enough for a swim, but definitely warm enough for the 'brellas on the climb out. Brought my dog, who did very well except for one little spot where she simply wouldn't climb. She wouldn't allow herself to be picked up, either (and I'm not strong enough to overpower a 50lb dog who REALLY doesn't want to go there). But, we found an easy way around that's probably better anyhow.

Love this spot!

Well the water levels today were way lower than the last trip (about a week ago) but still plenty to swim in and to cool off in. But this time the water was really clear, unlike last week when it was flowing much more and was much higher but you couldn't see your hand in from of your face underwater.
The Dog really enjoyed it too, she swam more than usual today. We didn't stay very long today but the weather was perfect, because we got there earlier than usual around 8am and saw absolutely no one while we were there. There was one guy at the parking area but we never saw him after that.
I love this place!
