    The destination is the reward. Very rocky and over 1,000 foot elevation gain makes it challenging. Worth the rocky climb to see the pools and spend some time there. I’m my opinion, should be a “difficult” not “moderate.” Must do early in the morning. Gets hot quickly.

    This is a very nice and scenic hike. I began just before sunrise. The air was very chilly, but as soon as the sun rose above the mountains, the temperature warmed up quickly, but was still comfortable in late morning.The landscape was surprisingly lush and verdant, owing to significant rainfalll in October. Numerous plants were in bloom, making for a very aesthetic hike. Visibility was excellent in mid-autumn conditions. - I had hoped to sight a Big Horn Sheep, after seeing numerous signs about them, but came up empty. I did spot a Gila Monster, which was the highlight of my day. The Romero Pools are situated about 3 miles from the trailhead and are beautiful. If you hike another 0.3 miles, you will encounter another set of pools.
