  • Such a beautiful place. Bring plenty of water, and make sure you stay on the trail. The Romero Pools is such a beautiful place. I will definitely be back.
  • Great place to go hiking and see the Catalina mountains. Dog friendly park. Entrance fee of $7 on weekends. There's also a camping/RV hook up area. Also saw a wedding take place.
  • Looks like an incredibly beautiful place. I just stopped by when I had 20 minutes to burn and got some hiking in.
