We have been coming here since we were kids. Love this hike and it’s a Tucson gem for sure. Easy path and a tram if you want to hop on and hop off.

The canyon is spectacular. The stream did have some water flowing. It must be quite something after a rain. We took the crawler and it's a good example of - it helps if you've done it before, so I'll spend more space on the crawler. We took the crawler in the afternoon and got a good overview of the canyon. There was a prerecorded narration, via the earbuds they provided, that gave some good info on the canyon. The narration only mentioned picnic tables at one stop, but there are others if you look. The information on the website for the crawler has some striking inaccuracies. The shuttle runs every hour NOT every 30 minutes. The last shuttle is at 2 PM. The 3PM and 4 PM crawlers don't exist, even though the website says they operate until 4 - the booking website oddly has the 3 and 4 PM crawlers shown as sold out. There were a few confused folks at the starting point at 3. If you get off and want to get back on, you have to be at a stop to get picked up. Try to flag it down in between and you'll watch it pass you by. If you miss a return trip on the 2PM, enjoy the walk down. (I'm not sure, but they may do a sweep with their open air bus to pick up stragglers sometime after 3.) What you get for a $12 ticket is one round trip - hop on and off at stops as you work your way up and down but they won't pick you up going up if you got off going down. The shuttle driver seemed a bit stressed and pushed to keep on schedule. They do insist on wearing masks on the shuttle - the driver stopped and called out anyone she noticed without one on. It is open air and there is no social distancing between passengers. The row of seats behind the driver is kept empty. In general, other hikers were the most helpful in learning the ins and outs of the crawler.

We have visited 3 times and each time experienced the canyon differently. Would recommend taking the tram ride up to the top of the canyon and then walk the 3.7 miles back to the visitor center. Upon checking into the tram we were given earbuds for the half hour narration about flora, fauna and history. Most of the return walk is down hill. Only a short section is an incline and that could be avoided by getting back on the tram at stop 2. We did take time to sit by the creek to soak in the peaceful setting. We saw folks with picnic food and children swimming in a small pool area. My camera will not do justice to the beauty. A fragrant woodsy smell accompanied us as we walked the return trip on the paved road. It was impressive to see that some folks walk the trail up and back everyday. This is a family friendly activity.

This is a very popular place managed by the USDA. To enjoy it you can either ride in the comfort of a bus or walk. I walked 5 miles round trip. There are many trails in different levels of difficulty. All take you into the rocks of the canyon. There are warning signs posted about mountain lions. Be sure to bring lots of water and something to munch on like apples or energy bars.
