Hike to Hutch's Pool

7.8 miles 647 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Emily Miller

Hike to Hutch's Pool and get nature's version of a day spa - cold fresh mountain water in the swimming hole, followed by laying on the warm sloping rocks in the sun. It's the perfect half-day hike for a picnic and dip.

Start at the Sabino Canyon trailhead - you can either walk up the dirt road (which adds about 4 miles) or take the $10 tram from the Visitor Center and hop off at the last stop #9. From there you hike 2.5 miles into Sabino Canyon into the basin (beautiful views of the canyon all the way there).

Once you’re at the basin, you’ll take the West Fork trail for another 1.6 miles. There will be a cairn marking the pool off to the right. Voila, you’re there!

Good way to spend a day

Nice hike; maybe not for beginners, unless you are a strong beginner. SWIMMING: Do not dive into pools as they may not be as deep as you think, you may get hurt and other people do not want to swim in the water after you are bleeding. I witnessed this there so it is not a joke. Generally this is not a good diving place, nor jumping place. Nice place to get your feet wet, though.
