The beach is for general naturists, it's got str8 people and often, children. The meadow is mostly gay & bi, where all kinds of may occur. In between you might find anything... 12/17/04 A cruiser reports: The crusiest part of the canyon is between the Damn and the Meadows. The "beach" is where the families and straight naturists hang out. Hike up the canyon and feast your eyes from there!
Crowd: Everyone, from gays to str8 nudists; all ages, including children.
From Tucson take I-10 southeast 15 miles, from Exit 275 take Houghton Rd. north for 13 miles, turn right (east) on Tanque Verde Rd.(which becomes Redington Rd.) for 6 miles, 1.5 miles past end on pavement. Park in turnout on left side on road and take trail marked "Upper Tanque Verde Falls".After descending into the canyon, hike upstream (left) past old dam to the gay nude area.
cruiser adds: The trailhead is difficult to see from the road, and there are actually two trails within 150 feet of each other. The Upper Falls trail, which is described in this listing, is further east than the other, the trailhead being where the road crooks to the north. A little ways down the trail you come upon two yellow signs - that's how you know you're on the right trail.
