Description

Short, easily accessible hike in West Tucson. Lots of Saguaros. New trail in good condition.

At the fork, about a mile from the trailhead, you can go either direction, and then cut over to the other fork to make a short loop. Trail keeps going, so this could be a longer hike.

Flora & Fauna

Desert landscape. Saguaros, barrel cactus, etc.
