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.

Went 2 weeks ago. Fun hike with awesome water falls but go when it has rained a day or two before.

Good challenge with a rewarding destination.

Arrived closer to sunset and found a rattlesnake! The hike may not have been worth it, but the rattlesnake made our day. Also saw some lizards, a rabbit, and an antelope squirrel!

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.
