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.

We drove through the park en route to Saguaro West National Park. As described: The drive offers "beautiful views of quintessential cactus country." The drive is free, but not for the faint of heart. So happy we found it!
