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.

Scenery is beautiful. We went because we could take our dogs. Dog owners should know that aside from the paved ten mile loop, there are only two “trails” you can take your dogs on (the dirt road in/out to Micah point, which is a pretty dull and straight walk; and the pretty but very short Ecology Trail). For the most part, you and pup will be sharing the road with cars and cyclists. We thought this would be unpleasant for our pups, but cyclists were considerate, and
cars traveled slowly. So even with all these qualifiers - we had a great time and purchased a season pass!

I didn't think this was easy, more like moderate, especially on a hot day. Nice hike with some cool features (dam, water tank). Lot of inclines and declines. I would do it again though.

Perfect trail for cacti lovers :-). Due to high temperatures is relatively hard, but nice.
