Coming from the northern prairies of Canada, seeing the majestic Saguaro cactus was a check off our bucket list. They are amazing. We saw many different types of cacti and were lucky to see some in flower. It must be beautiful in the spring when the rest are in flower. An easy walk near the Visitor Center gives you an... More

This National Park is wonderful! There are many trails to fit the experience level of most hikers. The trails are very well maintained which maximizes your hiking tour adventure. We made it to Wasson Peak from Sendero Esperanza trail head in less than two hours with a lunch stop! The trail was excellent, the views were "over the top" and... More

On our way to the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum outside Tucson, we stopped off at the Saguaro National Park and spent some time at the Visitor's Center and the surrounding area. The Visitor's Center was very nice and they had a great gift shop with so many quality gifts of the Southwest. The park rangers were informative. We took the time... More

You are guaranteed to see LOTS of huge Saguaros, some well over 25 feet tall. There are many trails with a fair number of easy ones. It's very easy to get up close to many types of cactus. The drive through the park is very scenic and be easily done in a few hours if you don't stop too much.... More

I never expected to see such a huge number of saguaro. We visited on the last day of our holiday almost as an afterthought. I'm so glad we did - we really enjoyed walking a couple of the short trails near the Visitor Centre. The Visitor Centre short film is also worth watching - with the spectacular ending!

On our way from Phoenix to silver city, mm, stopped for a brief visit. It has a dirt road for a loop drive but our rental sedan did just fine. Just driving the loop was about one hour. Very pretty and lots of saguaro cacti. There are numerous hiking trails we didn't do. Nice welcome center. It was a nice... More

The National Park Service does not disappoint in providing a great experience in our natural resources. The Saguaro cacti are majestic...it's such a unique kind of "forest". Really enjoyed the easy walk on the Valley View trail and the Signal Hill trail. Got spectacular views and got up close and personal to the cacti.

If possible take Ben Callahan's 90 minute walk and talk. I think the title is Desert Discovery or the like. The information we received made us see the cacti and other plant life here in a completely different light. The visitor center and the car loop tour are excellent and there are numerous longer hikes. Be prepared for lots of... More

It starts with the drive into the park when you can see the cacti towering over the desert floor. Then when you get the chance to walk among the Saguaro and other cacti species it is truly AWE inspiring what can grow in the desert. Spent an enjoyable day hiking various trails and in the visitors center which has friendly... More

Once again the National Park Service does a wonderful job of revealing the natural wonders and history of our country. The Saguaro Cacti are truly amazing to walk among; as are the all the other cacti species. My only regret is not being able to see the cacti blooming in the spring. Really worth a visit if you're in the... More
