Finger Rock Canyon is named for one of the most recognizable features in the Santa Catalina Mountains, visible from most of Tucson. It lies immediately west of Pontatoc Canyon, and the two share a trailhead. Aside from the bouldering along the trail, anything you climb here should be considered backcountry.
From Tucson, drive north on Swan, past River Road and past Sunrise.
