“Part of Saguaro National Park West area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

They are adjacent. It is open desert, part of the national park, can't tell where one starts and one stops. Beautiful breathtaking scenery you won't find anywhere else.

“Hike Time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The visitor center is stocked with educational exhibits and materials. It has a great jr ranger program! The hikes that fan out from there range from easy to hard, but most are easy-moderate and can be done in 1-2 hours. Take water! The views of the city from some points on the trails is worth a hike itself! These mountains get snow on them sometimes, but it does not last long.

“Beautiful scenic drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

This is a gorgeous Saquaro cactus drive worth your time taking. Stop at the Visitor's Center for a short video about the area.

“See the sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We headed here and stopped at Gates Pass to watch the sunset. Even though we arrived, 20 minutes before the sunset, we were not early enough to hike to a good vantage point. We are going back tomorrow, this time an hour early, to get a great view. If you are looking for some great sunset pictures, this is the place.
