Today we’re heading to Catalina State Park to the Romero Pools trail.
The hike to Romero Pools is about four miles. You can see beautiful views of Oro Valley and the Tortolita Mountains.
You’ll start at the trailhead parking lot and cross Sutherland Wash, which flows seasonally. The first mile is a relatively flat and easy walk, so you can bring the dog with you up to this point. However, beyond this mark, the hike will become steep and rocky, and dogs are no longer allowed.
Hikers say this hike takes around three to four hours round trip.
