Saw a crested saguaro and enjoyed beautiful scenery. The length/elevation is perfect for a relaxing hike in the desert. There are maps clearly indicating where you are at every junction. Follow my instagram for more adventures @julie_journeys

Lots of dog walkers and mountain bikes. Pretty narrow in spots to let people pass. Would recommend for non-reactive dogs. Well marked trail, little shade, lots of sun.

Nice hike for dogs, lots of loops. Remember to pick up your pups droppings...

This is a good trail in the Sweetwater Preserve Trailhead. Pretty rocky so I would recommend hiking boots/shoes. Lots of mountain bike riders too so be prepared to share the trails. Overall this particular trail was pretty easy; not really moderate at all. I would rate it easy+. The views of all the saguaros are spectacular.

Nice hike with very well defined trail and lots of signage to let you know where you are and which way to go. Nice views, with tons of Saguaros. Good for any age or skill level. Be sure to move aside for mountain bikers.

This is a very well maintained trail with fantastic scenery. Pretty easy with not a lot of elevation. Trail can get a little rocky at points, but not bad. Very easy to follow with plenty of signs along the way.

Sweetwater trail is on one of my top favorites in Arizona. Though there are lots of saguaro they offer a little shades. so start this hike earlier in the day. Bring lots of water in the summer. The trails are marked very well. There are no bathrooms at the start of this trail. Dog friendly, hiker friendly, mountain biking friendly. Enjoy

Saguaro Vista is a perfect little (<2 mile) run. The trail is perfectly groomed and is thoroughly marked. Ran the short trail today but will be trying the longer trails soon!

Beautiful views! Nice easy hike. Watch out for mountain bikers if you are hiking or walking a dog. They are respectful but can come up fast if you’re not expecting it.

Very nice easy trail on weekdays. Weekends you need to have a heads Up for those on bikes as this trail is a very popular mountain bike area. This trail is mostly flat with just a little elevation gain, great for early morning or early evening get a way hikes.
