Picacho Peak State Park Reviews
Excellent hike with awesome views. Challenging bits, but just go slow. You will be glad you did it. Listen for the peregrine falcons and look for the swallows. We missed the wild bee hive. more »
Another great spot for super-bloom near Tucson. We stopped on our way to Sedona, glad we did. The rangers in the welcome center were very nice and helpful. We chose the moderate Hunter Trail and admir... more »

Beautiful state park with great hikes. The flowers and cacti look beautiful and mountain is majestic. Bathrooms and picnic areas were very clean and well maintained. The hikes available are available for different difficulty levels and are well maintained. Well worth the 85 mile drive from Phoenix.
What a great park! I can't wait to come back and camp. Did the Hunter trail and enjoyed the stunning scenery, the physical challenge and I finally saw some wildlife-a squirrel and chipmunk.
This hike/climb was awesome. The journey was better than the final destination. I took the Hunter trail and can say that it was a serious workout for the short duration. The cables were helpful for maintaining a good pace for the hike. Plan for 3+ hours for the average hiker.
The park was gorgeous, wildflowers everywhere! We just stopped briefly for a picnic lunch and didn't know the park was so popular. The wait was a out 20 minutes to get in and through and paid for the day, not bad. Can't wait to go back and do some hiking when time permits.
Well maintained, clean ramada area with picnic tables. The park employee was very helpful and friendly when we went into the visitor center. Beautiful cactus flowers and other plants still blooming. A crow flew over the picnic area and we watched him circle around. A peaceful afternoon.
