Spent an afternoon exploring this beautiful and wild area. Not quite an hour south of Tucson and you're in what feels like the middle of nowhere. Beautiful Mount Wrightson with its bald peaks, deep canyons that beg exploring along with a myriad of dirt roads that go all over the place makes for a fun way to spend the day.
As others have written - the hiking is very steep. There is very little let-up. Make sure you have plenty of food/water. The Old Baldy trail was easy going up but I found it harder going down as it was dusty/slippery so make sure you have shoes with good traction and/or poles. Some of the other trails are harder to locate but the main ones are easy - just take the Madera Canyon road all the way til you can't go any more...there is a parking lot there with bathrooms and signage.
