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.

Something for everyone, hiking, horseback, bicycles, or just a nice visitors center. You may see a coyote or mountain lion in remote areas during cool time of day. Birds are plentiful. This is the home of majestic Saguaro Cactus and beautiful sunrise/sunsets.
