TUCSON - Blooms, birds and beautiful scenery abound in the Santa Rita Mountains.
The Vault Mine Trail provides hikers all of this and more. Rugged at times, the trail has a little bit of everything for weekend warriors. Even the most experience hikers recommend bringing a hiking stick along to keep up with the terrain.
Shaded spots along the Vault Mine Trail may also have some lingering snow on the ground, so careful footing may be needed as well.
