Linda Vista Trail Reviews
We are from Florida and do a lot of walking, but generally without changes in elevation. We have good stamina. We were at the nearby Hilton and this trail was recommended to us - it is walk-able from ... more »

We enjoyed this hike. We had done Finger rock the other day, and this is a much easier trail, and scenery is different too, which was nice. We did the loop, and you do climb quite a bit, but nothing t... more »
Beutiful hiking trail. It's a wonderful time of year to go hiking as well, especially around early morning. There are different options with varying difficulties perfect for beginners. Definitely reccomended for anyone starting out who wants to hike for a small amount of distance (the main one is about half a mile) while still getting a workout due to the elevation.
This is a short trail with a great view of the Catalina Mountains and Oro Valley. At the entrance you find a map. I would suggest to take a picture of the map to navigate around the loop because the trail can be missed easily and there are no signs. The trail is fairly easy, just a bit slippery. This is also a great place for those who like birds. Parking is limited and it was full already at 9 am. You can always park by Kneaders.
Really nice hike. Did the full loop...took my time (about 1:45 to complete), stopped a number of times to enjoy the scenery and some great views...saw some deer too. Really quite green due to the recent rain. Some relatively steep spots and a bit rocky but not too bad overall. Looking forward to visiting again soon!!
A fun albeit short hike. Nice mountain views, but you always have the city in view behind you. There is a fair number of high steps, it feels a bit like a stair climb at times.
We ended up taking the long loop around because we missed the turn onto the shorter path. The northernmost side of the loop isn't well-marked, although people have tried by lining up rocks. Keep an eye out for those rocks and you should be good. This trail offers nice views, it's close to town and the parking is free.
