Saguaro National Park, Tucson Reviews
Such an awesome and unique scenery. I live in Cali and we don’t get to see a whole lot of cactus. Learning about the different kinds of cactus and how long they have been around is astonishing. This national park is not to be missed if you are in Tucson.
Pretty special place with much more variety of plants than I thought. One thing that hits you though is how close you remain to the edge of the park and the development that comes right up to it. Hot the whole time we were there so only short hikes. Much better in cooler season when more central ares are accessible and more wildlife.
Seeing the giant cactus was amazing! Just be prepared for the heat if you visit in June. In addition, make sure to check the pavement with your hand if you have a pet! If you can't hold your hand on the pavement, don't let your pet on it because it will burn their pads. Have a great time! I did!
Sad to see how many of these beautiful cacti have been killed, removed and habitat (nurse trees) destroyed within just the last 100 years. Even now, the area looks like something right out of a 50s western film or from a Looney Tunes coyote roadrunner episode. Definitely a must see if you're anywhere within 6 hours.
Been to East and West a few times. West is our favorite. The visitor's center is very nice and the trails are wide and welcoming. There is just something very calming about walking among the saguaros and the desert landscape. Make sure to bring a good amount of water, sunscreen and sunglasses/ hat. We wear long sleeves and pants, but light enough to breathe.
