The trail system offers opportunities for easier hikes like on the Yettman trail or more challenging loops through some more difficult terrain. You can hike an hour, or a day, whatever fits your needs. The trails are well marked and at least during my hikes...More

Some great hiking opportunities here right next to the city. Diverse geology, Sonoran Desert flora and fauna. Being near the Tucson International Airport, Davis-Monthan AFB and the AZ Air Guard means that there is nearly constant aircraft noise. Dogs should be allowed on a few...More

Tucson Mountain is on the West side of town; very nice Visitor Center. Do not skip Signal Hill where you can find nice petroglyphs. Saguaros all over the place.

We stayed here December 23rd at the Gilbert Ray Campground. Lots of spaces, first come first serve basis. Most sites, except tent, have electrical hookups. Beautiful cactus, desert environment. Only downside, no showers.

Lots of huge Saguaro cacti and good scenery, paved roads and lots of places to pull off or picnic. Recommended!

The top destination for cactus lovers. Millions of cactus, all forms and sizes, different types and colors at the valley and hills slopes, with view points and trails. The park with free entrance and picturesque drive, even no need to go to Saguaro NP.
