Arizona's Saguaro National Park has two district - east and west. A drive along the 8 mile Cactus
Forest Loop Scenic Drive can take a minimum of 45 minutes because the road is quite narrow and
full of switchbacks. Like many people, we spent about 3 hours in Saguaro East so that we could
stop at most of the scenic overlooks plus do some hiking!

What's your favorite type of natural scenery?
It seems like most people respond to this question with "waterfalls", "blue water", "snow covered
mountains" and the like. Sadly, the desert doesn't usually make the top of the list. While desert
scenery isn't at the top of our list either, it's definitely beautiful in its own right.
If you are like many other travelers, you might be making plans for more local travel this year.
Don't miss an opportunity to see the amazing saguaros in Tucson if you're headed west in the US.
Saguaro National Park is a perfect fall destination as the temperatures are cooler - but the scenery
is still incredible.
