Trail shared by Stephen Woodall

A shorter section of smooth trail that takes you through a tunnel underneath the highway.

Features Fall Colors · Views

Description

This short section of trail goes through the Bear Wallow Campground and leads from the Boy Scout Trail to the Sunset Trail #90 and parking area. While not very long, it's a fun section of trail that's mostly very smooth with a couple of notable sections of shale rock. The highlight for some people on this trail is the tunnel that leads underneath the highway and connects over towards the Sunset Trail and parking area. The tunnel isn't very long and is quite open, but it's a neat experience. This trail has the best fall colors on the mountain.

This is the tunnel that goes under the Mt Lemmon Highway, near mile marker 22.  Went on this short hike on 11/10/17 and we could still see some fall colors!  Easy and neat hike!
