Hittin’ the Trails: Ventana Canyon Trail

TUCSON – Looking to burn off a few calories this weekend? Hit the trails in the Catalina Mountains on the Ventana Canyon Trail.

This is one of the most beautiful hikes!  However, it’s surprisingly a hidden gem. Why? Well, the trail starts in the employees’ parking lot of the Loews Ventana Canyon resort.
The trek along the trail has several wash crossing. About a mile in, hikers will reach a barbed wire fence. It’s here that the trail will get a little more difficult.
Invest a half day for this adventure. It’s roughly 5 miles round trip from the trailhead to Maiden Pools, which is the most popular destination on this hike.
