Hidden Falls on Mt Lemmon

A few weeks ago, I hiked from the base to the summit of Mt. Lemmon in order to take a few photos on the mountain before it gets too hot. We started in Catalina State Park, hiked past Romero Pools, and up to the summit before camping at the top- it was a long day of walking, but it was incredibly rewarding because the views were spectacular as we ascended through the Sonoran desert, into grassland, scrub oak, and finally pine forest.  On the way up, we took a break to re-fill our water bottles at a hidden waterfall before starting up the Pass.  I included a portrait of my friend and a black and white vertical panorama of the falls.  I will try to post a set of sunset and sunrise panoramas from the summit next weekend.

    Luke, would you be willing to give me the location of these falls? I have a place I like to go to called Secret Cove that is amazing, I could swap details with you if you like.

    • Hi Maria- It’s been a couple of years since I was there, but as far as I can remember, the falls are on the right (south) side of the trail as you hike up from Romero Pools towards the pass above the pools (probably at least 1-2 miles above the pools). The trail stays on the north side of the stream, and we dropped down to this area to fill our water before the trail crossed to the south side and went up the pass. I hope this helps.

      What’s this “Secret Cove”?
