Ventana Canyon lies immediately west of Esperero Canyon, and is one of the most scenic in the Santa Catalina Range. It is named for a huge window formation in the canyon's upper reaches. Visiting the window is a popular and scenic, but very long hike.

There are also a couple opportunities for climbing here... some scattered bouldering and a few remote trad routes.

Getting There 

Ventana Canyon Trail is accessed from the designated public parking lot at Ventana Canyon Resort on north Kolb Rd.
