Hittin' the Trails 4 You: Mount Lemmon's Wilderness of Rock Trail

Posted: Updated:

MOUNT LEMMON - A Northern Arizona feel without taking the long drive.

Marshall Gulch is where the path to the Wilderness of Rock begins. It's a 1.2 mile segment taking you over the river and through the woods.

Keep your eyes open for a variety of wildflowers and several frog sightings. About a half hour later, the Marshall Gulch Trail ends and the Wilderness of Rock Trail begins. From the top of Marshall Gulch, the trail goes downhill and loses roughly 1,300 feet in elevation.

Less than a half mile in to the Wilderness of Rock Trail, the forest opens up to a dramatic landscape. A series of rock outcroppings stand out, which hikers describe as other-worldly.
