Great trail for a run!

Great quick trail. I was trying to trail run and I don't do that often, so it was a little rocky for me, but easy to walk when I needed to. Beautiful scenery and even saw a mule dear. Highly recommend.

Lovely walk in the early hours today. I recommend this one for the vistas and desert plants.

Beautiful trail. Hiked it this morning and the views were great. Make sure to have water.

Saw a rattlesnake, lizard, and tarantula. Very easy for kids but we were spooked from the rattlesnake. Great signs to describe the mammoth sites! Would do it again!

I don't mind the sights and sounds of the nearby city. Beautiful views that change a lot through the course of the hike. Lots of saguaro including young saguaro. Great views of downtown Tucson.

nice quick hike.

I’ve been doing this trail for 10 years never disappoints. Easy and great to take friends on.

Loved it here. Even in 95 degree weather

Very nice. We saw rabbits and lizards. Great for my little walkers.

Nice hike but trail is not great. I spent most of my time looking down so as not to slip on all the loose rock and dirt so I missed much of the beauty of the area. Did see a small herd of mule deer close to the end of the trail though.

Quick and easy trail with a bit of history and remnants of foundation of buildings that once stood.

Fun trail. Lots of saguaro but trail is not prickly. Fun Bowen house at end of the trail.

My favorite so far in Tucson. There are actually quite a few options of other trails after you get on the trail about 1/8th of a mile, and it’s all clearly marked so no confusion if you are on the trail or not. And the Saguaro cactus are abundant, and beautiful! Lots of mountain bikers come through so just be aware of trail etiquette (step to the side when you hear them coming), and you will be great (and they all appreciate it when you do this). Only downside is no facilities anywhere (no gas station bathrooms nearby either), so be prepared for that...

Great short trail. It may be easy for 20 to 40 year olds , but a little challenging for a 62 year old fart.

Parking nightmare! Great if u stay at the Marriott. Otherwise plan to pay $15
StarrPass Trail is better option.

Started at San Pedro Trail to get a longer hike in. Good hike, something different since you’re not near mountain ranges.

Fun trail, you have to park on the street behind the starr pass resort. I was confused because I thought the Bowen house would be at the end of Bowen trail, but really you have to swing a left onto yetman and follow that for 15 minutes or so to reach the house. The house is super cool and worth a visit!

Great winter hike. Close to town and short. Amazing saguaros in the hidden canyon!

Too easy. Could see the toad and cars from the trail. Prefer trails where I don’t see any houses or cars. Won’t be doing this one again.

Beautiful, well marked, can see a crested Saguaro.

A nice loop drive through a very small portion of the park. If you are able, get out of the car and explore a trail!

A very easy walk through a variety of desert vegetation with explanatory signage along the trail. Great views of the Santa Catalina Mountains to the east.

Fun walk this morning, beautiful rock formations and amazing Saguaros.

Nice little trail with some beautiful landscaping, but river road is close with a lot of cars going by. Still a nice little walk though, I would recommend!

Very short but you will see a lot of good looking saguaros.
