I went there on an overcast (thank god!), cool (for Tucson) day and hiked up to the Romero Pools. That was a challenging hike--at least five miles return, and lots of steep up and down. The perfect hiking weather brought quite a crowd. The parking lot was full, but it's OK to park along the road. The trail was busy. Wild flowers were abundant and vivid, vistas are spectacular. The Romero Pools are deep and busy with happy folks cooling their feet and jumping into the deeper parts.
You don't have to hike to the Romero Pools. There are other trails and lots of activities, including birding. The day I went, there was an exhibit of desert wildlife, including the poisonous varieties--most notably some big old Gila monsters. Customers were encouraged to handle some of the harmless animals. Great for the kids.
Admission is $7 per vehicle.

This park is close to us and is great for all levels of hikers, from the take it easy one hour hikers, to the all day hikers who want to get some serious climbing in.

Just plain peaceful and inviting. Lonely drive. Good and plenty of parking, so stop and do some hiking, then enjoy a picnic lunch in the area. Lots of birds and wildlife. A peaceful day here,

In addition to having a very nice campground, Catalina SP offers a wonderful hike to Romero Pools which always have water. Romero trail is also a great place to see wildflowers in Spring.

This is a spectacular mountain. The hike up to the water pools and waterfall was gorgeous. Wild flowers were out. No garbage on the trail EXCEPT for a diaper at the pools. BLEH! Shame on who ever left it there.
