Finger Rock Trail to the Pima Canyon Trail Junction – 11/19/2014

1411 Descending the Finger Rock Trail
Headed back into Tucson on the Finger Rock Trail. November 2014.

The weather is finally great for lower elevation hikes! On this hike up Finger Rock I especially enjoyed the section above the turn to Linda Vista where the trail winds in and out of small drainages below big cliffs, the feel of the trail underfoot and plants around you constantly changing.

I had hoped to go a bit further than the junction with the Pima Canyon Trail – but I ran out of time and and it is hard to argue with the junction as a stopping spot with the view below just a minute away… 9.5 miles, 3950′ of elevation gain/loss.

Taken near a campsite off the Finger Rock Trail just after the junction with the Pima Canyon Trail – great views all the way to the top of the mountain! November 2014.
