A great hike along the ridge, with flowers already blooming everywhere. Took relatives from Pennsylvania along to see the lush desert.

What a delight this peak was in spring of 2005! Tucson received a great deal of precipitation in the winter months, and the desert was alive, not just with wonderful wildflowers, but also a lot of green grasses. We encountered a rattlesnake right next to the trail along the way, so keep your eyes peeled if you go. Great views of the surrounding ranges, and the trail was excellent the whole way. I'd say it's a better way to experience the desert than the Sonoran Desert Museum, which is located across the street from the trailhead we used. A trip report is available here.
