Hiked the View Trail. Nice and easy, beautiful trail. There are rock steps to a nice view from the top. Benchs on top to sit and reflect.

So close to the city. A great drive with some super hiking. So nice to see wilderness areas protected when capitalists could have mined and desecrated the area.

Driving to Saguaro National Park (West) we drove through Tucson Mountain Park. There is NO charge for this. Amazing scenery and the pullouts had trails that immediately put you IN the scene. Wonderful photo ops! It was a nice appetizer for our National Park visit!

We drove through one afternoon in the rain and the views were great! I can only imagine they're even better with sunny skies. A few places to pull off and explore and take photos and enjoy nature. Definitely worth getting off the interstate.

This is part of the Saguaro National Park -- West. Get a map at the visitor's center, where you must pay a fee -- $15.00. There are hiking trails. The Bajada Loop Drive is NOT paved and runs about 5 miles. There is a speed...More

Visiting a movie set in the middle of the desert is a very unusual experience. This location has incredible movie history with over 50 major motion pictures filmed here. Well worth the walk around tour, although the train ride is a bit hokey.

Completed this hike with a friend this am. It took us about 3 hours for the 4.2 miles. Beautiful, hiking up small mountain ridges, looking down at the Desert Museum. We were able to watch and hear the Raptors fly this am!

Good for hiking or biking and popular with joggers, this trail is accessible from the Marriott Starr Resort via the Bowen trail. In 1.4 miles you encounter the Bowen homestead, an abandoned stone structure from the 1920s. Very flat walk with some gentle hills and...More

Tucson Mountain Park is a great place to see a large number of Saguaro Cacti.It's easy to navigate and provides a good look at the foothills landscape around Tucson.

We drove through Tucson Mountain Park to see the Saguaros. They are all over and the views are beautiful. We stopped at some of the turnoffs. If you are choosing between this and the national park, I would still recommend the national park.
