“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This was my first visit here even though I am a native. I will return. Take the time to experience the free raptor show! saw several raptors upclose and got some great pictures and explanations. The docents are very knowledgeable and helpful. Plan on spending a few hours to several hours. Also wonderful hummingbird aviary.

“Saguaro West NP”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

First visit to the park. A frost 2 weeks ago did major damage to new blossoms so saw no flowers (one of the top reasons for the visit). Views were fantastic - took the loop drive. Due to time constraints, we did not hike. We did view the film at the visitor's center which was very informative. Was very wheel chair accessible. Would visit again.

Great hiking trails, easy and challenging, petroglyphs. Go in the winter months for a cool, relaxing hike.

“Gorgeous, a lot of interesting things near by, wonderful visitors's center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Saguaro West has many wonderful hiking trails, well marked and short, so that you can easily enjoy several in once day. We took Signal Hill trail to enjoy the amazing view and the petroglyphs at the top of Signal Hill. The drive through the park is beautiful. The Visitor's Center was chock full of very helpful, welcoming staff. The West Entrance is close to Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum which is well worth seeing - especially the "Birds of Prey" show and Gate's Pass - which an amazing place from which to enjoy the sunset. Combining these attractions provided for an amazing day for us in tucson.
