This is a nice trail down to the falls. We don't hike much and this was not too long or difficult for us. The area down by the falls is beauriful and really nice for a picnic or just to sit and visit.
Even though there was quite a bit of rain a couple of days ago, it's fall and so the falls are pretty dry. I'm sure this is even more impressive in the spring. A great hike for beginners with great views.

This was a great, shorter hike. We went late morning and it still ended up getting close to 90 degrees by the time we are done. Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful day and scenery. We were hoping to see more water, really just a small trickle this time. I would definitely come back, walking sticks would be a plus to have. The trail is not marked so make sure you note your surroundings when descending, so you know where to return to the trail on the way back up. We were able to call out to some fellow hikers who missed the turn to go back up.

This is theTanque Verde Falls

It was spring. Flowers were almost everywhere.

Naturally there were cacti.

Once we were at our destination, we saw waterfalls and water as well.

A must see!

My husband and I visited Tanque Verde Falls on a last-minute stop to Tuscon as part of a hiking trip in the southwest. The trail was very lightly trafficked. We only saw a few other hikers while we were there. It's a steady incline down to the falls and back up; well marked and easy to follow. On the way back up, we followed some little paths away from the main trail and were able to scramble rocks for more of a challenge on the way back up. It was a great trail for seeing the cacti and the water at the bottom. There was a rock we scrambled to on the way up where we were able to sit and enjoy the view of the valley. There was parking right across from the trailhead. I'd definitely recommend this trail if you're in the area!

We followed the Tanque verde Canyon Ravine. We were looking for flowers. They were beautiful!

We also enjoyed the cacti. There are many of them. Beautiful! Ocotillos and saguaros.

We found a waterfall and sand as well.

There was a lot of water. Wow!

We were surrounded by mountains.

A must see. Many people enjoyed the water and sand.

I wished I could stay here all the day!

The trail head is on the right hand side of the road, little tough to see as the sign sits back the trail head a few yards. Single wide trail but very easy, without my rocks to climb over. Just before you get to the falls you can find a rock out cropping to sit on have lunch with a great view of the falls and beach below. If you can handle a little more rocky trail, just west of this trial head is a trail down to the creak bed far below the falls. Very nice beach below the falls and place to relax and get wet most times of the year

First of all its important to say: this is not for people with mobility problems. Its not far from a small car park but it does have its challenges to reach. Saying that its worth every slip and slide and ability to climb like a mountain goat....
Its serene, beautiful and with most things nature has to offer, its amazing.

This is not too long of a trail, nothing crazy.
We went the early part of February and there was some water going over the rocks.
A very pretty area, and the rocks at water level are super smooth, careful on your footing, easy to slip.

My family and I love the falls. We hike it when the water is running so that the dogs can swim during the hot days of summer. I live 30 mins away and I experience total freedom. However, if you find nudity to be offensive it's best to go somewhere else, you never know who you are going to run into. I can't wait to go back again.
