Had a Tucson weekend and having previously gone to the west version of Saguaro National Park, decided this time to check out the east version. With only a few hours we opted for the loma verde loop as described in the park provided brochure as a 3.8 mile loop, loma verde to pink hills to squeeze pen. Nice little hike, not much elevation gain or loss, lots of desert plant life. weather was great, went up the cactus forest dr. a bit to a look out for lunch and then on to our next destination.

Another loop hike in Saguaro National Park. The trails in this portion of the park are not a real challenge but they are nice when you just have a few hours and want to get out and do some walking. There is some interesting history in this portion of the park. A few to look up and research are the Loma Verde Mine, the old Kennedy Trail (use to be a dirt road) and Garwood Dam. Didn't see any wildlife but sometimes the tourist are more interesting.
