Having rented a house near by, we traveled through and stopped at all the places you can stop in the park. Very curvy road that can be steep at time. But drive slow and enjoy the view. Lots of pull offs and picnic areas. Right out its backdoor is Saguaro National Park West. Don't miss either

Hiked the Brown Mountain Trail in Tucson Mountain Park. Trailhead parking good, just of McCain Loop Road. Great views from along the ridge of Brown Mountain. Awesome saguaros every where which were just starting to flower.

There are routes around the mountain pass to go to the Desert Museum or Old Tucson, but why miss this fantastic view? Just a drive through and over is breath taking. Take q ucik little hike or plan a longer one for incredible views of the city and desert floor.

Easy drive as you're going into the western district (Tucson Mountain District) of the Saguaro National Park. Lots of saguaros, various cacti, etc.

The county campground on McCain loop is a great opportunity to camp in the near wild of the desert. Only minutes from Tucson and very close to Saguaro West and Old Tucson park it is a great place to RV. We have stayed there on 3 occasions and always had a great time. Also great for bicycling.

This area has some really fascinating desert scenery with saguaros to be seen everywhere. It was late in the day when we visited so we didn't have time to do any hiking, but it appeared to be a great area for walking, with plenty of wildlife to be seen.

Saguaros gone wild. Lovely drive through the mountains with thousands of saguaros growing in the hillside. Hiking trails and picnic areas are available.
