Great trail and well marked although it is closer to 7.4 miles not 6.5. Nice views and good path. Go early!

Such an awesome day on the trail!!! Saw a gila monster, and found a gorgeous crested saguaro! Couldn't believe my luck - plus an all around beautiful mild walk, with lots of wildflowers. Looped back on another trail. Follow my instagram for more adventures @julie_journeys

This was a very easy trail, great for children. I hiked pasted the dam and connected to Wildhorse trail and back for added mileage. Perfect weather for an awesome hike with great waterfalls.

Easy trail walk. Rather then out and back, we got in other trails to loop back to the trailhead.

Hiked on Feb. 25th. We hiked Garwood from Douglas Spring Trailhead, past the dam, then connected with Wildhorse to loop back to the trailhead. Figured around 6 miles total. Came across 4 water falls.

Nice hike with plenty of blooming cacti! Super hot with no shade coverage, bring sunscreen and water. Pretty flat the whole hike.

Hiked the Garwood trail and Carrillo trail to make a complete loop. Use the trailhead off of Speedway Blvd. If you have time go to visitor center to obtain a map which describes this loop and shows landmarks. The hike is 5.9 miles and I found it to be mostly moderate with some easy places. Be sure you take the Douglas Spring trail to Garwood Dam Trail and then to Carrillo trail. Douglas Spring trail is very steep and rocky past the intersection of Garwood trail. I found it easier to descend the Douglas Spring trail. Garwood Dam is well worth the hike although there was not any water running through the dam or the river canyon when I hiked. However, there were a few pools of water below the dam. I found the hike intriguing given the history of the area. Be sure to research the history of the area before you go. There are stories of wealthy ranchers, gold and bandeleros. All in all a great hike with many beautiful views of the Rincon and the more distant Catalina Mts. I plan on returning when there is water running through the dam.

One of the prettiest trails in Saguaro NP east. It connects with a large number of other trails to make a large variety of loops -- or you can do it out and back. Features a broad array of flowering cactus (saguaro, staghorn, prickly pear, headgehog, etc.), as well as evidence of coyote, mule deer, rabbit, jack rabbit, diamondback and racer snakes, and gila monsters. I am on this trail several times a week.
