Owner description: Hiking trail in Saguaro East.
Reviewed 2 September 2015

Spotted this area as we were getting ready to leave the park. Thought we would stop and check it out. It was well worth the stop. It was handicap accessible, and with my wife temporarily in a wheel chair, it was a perfect spot to see a lot of the plants and cactus native to the area, and eve saw some wild life. The whole trail took about a half hour, and was well worth every minute.

Halfway through the loop drive, this trail gets you walking around Saguaro and mesquite. It's not very long, but hot. Bring water.

We haven't seen much wildlife on this trail but it is good to look at the birds and the various types of cacti and plants. It is a nice easy walk and ideal for anyone who doesn't want to walk too far in the heat. It is part way along the scenic drive.
