Paved trail through the Sonoran desert. At times there is a trolly taking you to various stops. Check if the trolley is running if you cannot walk too far. Lovely desert scenery

The tram is not running now, so this is an excellent time to go. Just be up for some hiking or walking.

What a great place to spend a day hiking! This park is so gorgeous and well kept. We hiked to the Dam and then on to Seven Falls. It was a work out but so worth it. Such nice trails.

I live 5 miles from this fabulous park. I trained there when I was getting ready to do the Grand Canyon. The park has many trails, the store and museum is well done. Great way to spend a day.
