“A very popular trail in the Tucson Mountain range.”— Austin Thomas
Turn left to continue on Sweetwater Trail. The next section of the trail will take you through a large wash and into a canyon that the trail stays in for the remainder of the run. After the wash and a quick set of switchbacks, the trail stays at a consistent grade all the way to the Sweetwater Saddle.
As you make your way up the trail, don't forget to look back for a unique view of the Santa Catalina Mountains! The high canyon walls block out most of the city to provide a perfect natural frame.
The end of the trail is marked by a large, open area and an intersection with King Canyon Trail.
