Desert beauty

One feels away from civilization here. Awesome Saguaro cactus, desert foliage, mountain views, interesting rock formations. Good place for a quiet picnic.

beautiful scenery. I take everyone for out of town here. It is a hit for ever, every time. So much so that I bought property as close to the park as I could, and built my dream home.

We liked everything about the park within a park. All the plants were easy access and it is a great place for photography. The park was in bloom, and that was a bonus.

For us, first-timer this was an eye-opening stop on our way further south and east. It had easy access, safe walking paths. it was very tempting to take pictures of everything!

What a beautiful place this time of year. Many cacti were blooming and the birds that we did see were such fun. There are all levels of trails and although some of the trails are a bit poorly marked, you would be hard pressed to get lost with the good map that you are provided with at the ranger station....

The park offers a great opportunity for relaxing, hiking, photographing, etc. My wife and I spent a few hours there just soaking in the sun and the beauty of the area. If I return to the Tucson ares, this visit will certainly be on my list again.

To really get a grasp on how many trails there are in this park, where they start (there are a lot a trail heads) and where they go you need the excellent guide produced by the park. On a recent visit we hike an half a dozen with a few minutes drive of our casita. One easy trail from the... More

You could drive through the park, take a picnic lunch and sit at a table where they had pull offs on the road, take a hike, or go biking.Beautiful mountains and cactus everywhere.

We tried many of the trails over a 5 week period. They were free, not too difficult, and not busy. Got a little confused a few times but we're beginning to understand that that's just part of the learning process as far as hiking is concerned. Lots of beauty.

If you are going to Old Tucson and The Desert Museum, this is right between the two. Very reasonable price and nicely kept. You can't make reservations but doesn't seem too busy. When you get tired of all the polished and cramped RV resorts tis is a nice place to go.
