We drove through one afternoon in the rain and the views were great! I can only imagine they're even better with sunny skies. A few places to pull off and explore and take photos and enjoy nature. Definitely worth getting off the interstate.

This is part of the Saguaro National Park -- West. Get a map at the visitor's center, where you must pay a fee -- $15.00. There are hiking trails. The Bajada Loop Drive is NOT paved and runs about 5 miles. There is a speed...More

Visiting a movie set in the middle of the desert is a very unusual experience. This location has incredible movie history with over 50 major motion pictures filmed here. Well worth the walk around tour, although the train ride is a bit hokey.

Completed this hike with a friend this am. It took us about 3 hours for the 4.2 miles. Beautiful, hiking up small mountain ridges, looking down at the Desert Museum. We were able to watch and hear the Raptors fly this am!

We drove through Tucson Mountain Park to see the Saguaros. They are all over and the views are beautiful. We stopped at some of the turnoffs. If you are choosing between this and the national park, I would still recommend the national park.

Saguaro cactus as far as the eye can see. It is a very picturesque place. There are many hiking trails and bicyclers on the twisty mountain roads.

The trail system offers opportunities for easier hikes like on the Yettman trail or more challenging loops through some more difficult terrain. You can hike an hour, or a day, whatever fits your needs. The trails are well marked and at least during my hikes...More
