Split into the separate Rincon Mountain and Tucson Mountain Districts, the dry Sonoran Desert is still home to much life in six biotic communities. Beyond the namesake Giant Saguaro cacti, there are barrel cactus, cholla cactus, and prickly pears, as well as the Lesser Long-nosed Bat, Spotted Owl, and javelinas.

We hiked the 3 mile Loma Verde Trail. Nice and easy trail to start off the day. A diamondback snake crossed our path while we were hiking.

The trail was pretty hard to follow at times. The only reason we knew where to go half the time was because of the stacked rocks--they were extremely helpful! Overall it was a fun hike with beautiful views! Would definitely do it again.

Great scenery , awesome for the kids

Went a little too late in the day. The sun was killer and there was no hope for shade anywhere. But overall not a bad hike, moderate difficulty with a great view

Just walking on sand is no fun!!
