Saguaro National Park
from Bob Cantor's National Parks Photo Gallery

Javelina Rocks is a fun place to explore right on the Cactus Forest Loop Drive in the Rincon Mountain (East) District of the park.
A Prickly Pear blooming in early April at Javelina Rocks.
A mile walk on the Cactus Forest Trail takes you to the half mile Lime Falls trail. The falls were completely dry in early April when I was there. As you can see, you may be sharing the trail with horses.
This view of a saguaro forest was taken from the end of the Desert Ecology Trail. This short walk is found on the very scenic 9-mile Bajada Loop in the Tucson Mountain (West) District of the park.
A mid-April visit found plenty of Saguaro and Ocotillo in bloom. This picture was taken on the Valley View Overlook Trail, an easy 1.5 mile round trip which is also found on the Bajada Loop.
