It was a nice, short hike to do with my 3 kids (3, 6, 7 y/o). Being our first time at Saguaro National Park, we missed 2 trailheads on the one-lane road, so we couldn't turn around since the loop is a bit long (so it seemed with the traffic traveling at 5mph). We were able to catch this trail before the park exit. There were quite a few beautiful blooms and new cacti emerging under the shady bushes and mesquites. Kids had a good time. Would like to do the other hikes that we missed next time. Weather is still nice enough. Follow the picnic sign to find the trail because we almost missed this one too. It's right before the beginning of the 2-way lane.

Easy enough for families with youngsters (6+ years). A little bit of 'Little House on the Prairie' information for the kids.
