Summary: The Linda Vista Loop is really a network of trails offering four miles of great views of Oro Valley and an optional, very steep trek to a picturesque dry waterfall. If you want to get to the dry waterfall, there is an unmarked metal sign near the South Eastern-most portion of the network. Take the smaller rocky trail to the right. There is a bit of climbing on all fours up a bare, rough-surfaced rock face to get to the top of the dry falls. The rest of the trail network has some climbing, but it is extremely mild in comparison (in fact, it is rather fun).
Trailhead: From Speedway and Campbell, head west on Speedway Blvd and follow for 2.2 miles. Turn right on Main Ave and follow for 0.3 mi. Main turns into Oracle Rd. Continue on N Oracle Rd and follow for 9.9 miles. Turn right at E Linda Vista Blvd and the trailhead will be on the right. (Lat:32.38058 Lon:-110.96123)

I normally like running this trail once or twice depending on how I feel. I enjoy it. It's a good workout and I have seen many Javelina, hawks, & Gila Monsters here. I recommend it to anyone who wants to get into hiking or trail running.
