Esperero/Ventana Traverse

Esperero Trail to Ventana Canyon Trail
Pusch Ridge Wilderness
Tucson, Arizona
Mileage - 18.1
Time - 5:48
AEG - 5,332ft

Mark and I wanted to go for something big (in terms of elevation) today in Tucson, and the route up Esperero to the Window seemed like a fitting choice. We even added in a side trip to summit Window Peak during this rugged, yet beautiful trek through one of my favorite places to hike in the entire state; the Pusch Ridge Wilderness. The extra mileage resulted from our decision to walk back to the Sabino Canyon Visitors Center on the road, instead of taking a cab from Ventana Canyon. As temperatures neared 80 degreees, we enjoyed the warm weather and a great hike in the mountains.

Window Peak - 7,466ft
