NileGuide Expert tip:
The Western district of Saguaro National Park is more popular, but both districts are well worth visiting.
There are two districts of Saguaro National Park that bookend Tucson on the east and the west. Both offer stunning views of the Sonoran Desert landscape, including saguaro forests. Both districts have driving roads that wander through parts of the park, but with its numerous hiking trails, the park is best experienced on foot. With its proximity to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, it would be easy to spend a day visiting the Tucson Mountain (West) District and the museum. The Rincon Mountain (East) District rises to over 8,000 feet and has 128 miles of trails.
