  • For me this review is about the West Side of Saguaro which is the better side for me. The Mountain Park is a large vacant area that includes wilderness areas like Gate's Pass but also destinations...  more »
  • This was a favorite place to visit with the forest of saguaro and the easy access to hiking paths. The overlook areas had valuable information to read to learn more about the area.  more »
  • The views here are stunning, and the wildlife can be pretty interesting! Despite the heat, there's one of the best views of an Arizona sunset over a vast and diverse desert valley, and if you can get out there when there's some clouds in the sky, the colours are vivid and the contrast in the shadows over the mountain create a very grand atmosphere. Not to mention, the road driving through is rather fun, but please be careful as there's little room for error.
  • This area is beautiful. We came around sunrise and really enjoyed a leisurely hike, with the cooler air and sun slowly coming up. The saguaros are truly impactful. The trails was a bit hard to identify but we still enjoyed ourselves and found our way around (w the help of a trails app). Do watch out for the jumping chollas, ouch!
