We drove through while going to Old Tucson. Just WOW!! It is an amazing place even in the winter. I hope to come back some day to see it in it's glory when the cats and wildflowers are in full swing.

The diverse dessert scenery is absolutely magnificent. There are lots of hiking trails, and walking paths. If you prefer, you can just drive through the park and enjoy the coyotes, saguaros, mesquite trees, etc.

Whether you want to hike, run or mountain bike, you can find trails for your activity in this large, beautiful park. Grab a map from the local visitor's bureau and you can easily find one of many trailheads surrounding the park.
