Great trail for getting up close to saguaros and also appreciating them from a view. Easy to get through and navigate. Nice interpretive panels along the way. Saw some lizards and a bunny along the way!

No shade. There are better hikes in the area in my opinion. It was our first hike in Saguaro though so it was great to get a taste of the desert.

Just opens to the valley of cactus. If it wasn't a quick 30 min round trip hike, it would've got less stars.

For an easy trail, this one offers a lot...super impressive saguaros all along, and lots of other native flora with good signage for identifying. Lovely view and benches at the end make for a nice quick stroll and place for a snack.

Fun easy hike to take your kids. We were able to hike it no problem. Great view at the top. Beware when passing people not to too close to the trail edge and get cacti stuck on you.

A short, easy, well marked trail; perfect for what it is. You won’t break much of a sweat, but you’ll see plenty of big Saguaros and catch some great views along the way.

Did this on Christmas Day and it was a nice relaxing way to spend some time. Very cool desert vegetation and I had never seen a saguaro before so it was great experiencing a whole different type of landscape. The trail is short and it's very easy so it wasn't so much of a hike to me, more of a sight seeing experience. We enjoyed it very much

Lovely quick hike to the valley view. You cross the Bajada Wash trail on your way, which is also worth hiking (not in the Alltrails database though). You will also connect with the Wild Dog trail, which connects with the Signal Hill trail at Golden Gate road.
