Ventana/Esperero Loop

  • Oct 28, 2012 · 6:00 AM
  • Ventana Canyon Trailhead

 Stats: 17.5 Miles

 Highest Elevation: 7300 feet

 lowest elevation : 2850 feet

 Elevation Gain : 4450 Feet

 Hiking Time: 10 hours

 Loop Hike

 This hike starts at the Ventana Canyon trailhead passing Maiden pools, connecting to Esperero trail. Esperero trail will take us past the Window, Window awesome saddle between Montrose Canyon and Esperero Canyon and then starts to descend into Esperero Canyon. This section of the trail was in poor condition the last couple times I've done this hike because its very overgrown.  As we continue to descend the trail gets much better passing the trail junction to Cathedral rock, Bridal Veil Falls, Esperero Creek, Geronimo Meadow, Bird Canyon and Sabino Canyon Visitors Center. From the visitor center we walk the last two miles to Ventana canyon TH. on Sunrise Rd.

This is a very difficult but rewarding hike!
