Since this is almost in our backyard, we come here often. Love the Loop drive through the Park. However, we have never walked this Trail, as the small parking lot was always full. There are about seven parking spots there, and a few times, we have seen the overflow parked almost on the road. Today (2/2), we came upon this spot, and there was not one car in the lot. So, walked this very easy, paved trail, and enjoyed it very much. It's a self-guided loop, which takes you through a small desert area. There are some information boards, and quite a few benches.
Driving the Cactus Forest Drive through Saguaro National Park can take some time, as the speed limit is 15 miles per hour. If the vehicle in front of you is barely creeping along, it can take much longer. This Trail is about midpoint, so it's nice to get out, stretch your legs, and take a very easy and pleasant walk.
