  • Wilder and less crowded than Saguaro Park West, this park has many varieties of cacti including the iconic saguaro, and with a but of patience you can see wildlife like elk as well as various species of bird. Note that while you can enter on foot at night, the parking lot gets closed after 5pm and there is no obvious place to leave your car. The night sky is quite spectacular despite it's closeness to Tucson.
  • A great place to enjoy the desert. Lots of trails for hikes. This area has a very thick Grove of Saguaro cactus. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Great hiking in the beautiful park. Lots of wildlife, and hardly any other people to be had! Perfect in the Arizona winter.
  • Brown Mountain trail is awesome but not marked at all. Print a map or use a hiking book. It is confusing near the parking lots. Also it is more like 5 miles.
  • Nice set of trails for hiking and mountain biking. The variety of plant life along the trails is amazing.
