  • Beautiful, relaxing hike. I love the saguaro cactus! There is a shuttle for $15 a person that runs on the hour. You’ll want to be there a little early. We were there at 9:50 but were not allowed to.....  more

  • We took the trolley up and enjoyed the scenery and the information in the tour. We especially appreciated the strictly enforced mask wearing as we have frail family members at home to protect. Half our group hiked the ridge back down and the rest of us rode back one stop then walked the rest of the way. We had a wheelchair with us and the road was manageable for able bodied people to push it. There were some pretty good uphill sections so we got a great workout. The scenery was so beautiful! We stopped at most of the creek crossings and our chair user was able to get out and walk around a bit. We were a as all SO happy to find somewhere to safely be outside together.
  • Absolutely beautiful park. It was crowded due to New Years Day visitors. However, there are enough trails and space for everyone to e joy their little slice of heaven. My partner and I enjoyed every moment of our 1.75-mile hike in the canyons. The experience was unforgettable, and we would definitely come back here to explore the other trails and walk further up the mountain next trip to Tucson. Parts of the hike were steep, and several areas were not well marked, but my partner is a good navigator, so we were able to find our way around. The wash was beautiful, and there were children playing in the water, which was a lovely sound.
