A tad expensive to enter 22 per person but a nice way to spend the early day. Several areas within including a butterfly hummingbird area, herb garden, several other loops of specific vegetation. All trails are configured within loops so no chance of getting turned...More

We go to Arizona in February and we go no this hike every year. This is my favorite trail. It is easy and it is a short hike. We always see rabbits and some birds. The trails are really beautiful.
