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.

This trail starts at the end of Signal Hill and is very flat. I walked it for ~ 1 mile due to time constraints. Great views of Saguaros, especially around sunset. We only saw one other person on the trail who was walking with his dog. Would recommend walking a portion if not the entire loop.

Beautiful. Challenging climb at first with very rewarding sights at the end. I made it a loop with a few of the other trails in the area. Can’t wait to do it again.

Did this trail last December after some good rains and took the spur out to Bridal Wreath Falls. Stunning views of a variety of different landscapes and very peaceful once you get up into the mountains. I had the Three Tank-Carrillo-Garwood Dam portion of the hike completely to myself that day and saw a herd of deer down in the valley as I came down around the ridge.

Great trail! Amazing views from all of Tucson.
