This is a county own park, right next to the National Park. There are a few trails. The top of gates pass (Speedway Blvd. far west end) is maybe the best sunset view in the Tucson area. Near this park is Saguaro national park, Arizona...More

The Sonoran Desert never ceases to amaze--it's become a favorite environment for inspiration. Seeing the diverse wild life that thrives, despite these dry conditions encourages me every drive through.

We went to this park right before sunset and enjoyed the view as day transitioned into night. Once the sky was dark, the stars were out in full force. It was worth the drive.

There is indeed some impressive Sonoran desert landscape here, but it's far from the top of the list in this regard in the Tucson area. Catalina, Saguaro, Sabino, etc. are all more attractive IMO.

You take this road to arrive at either the Saguaro National Park and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. There are many turnouts and trailheads for picture taking.

So close to the city. A great drive with some super hiking. So nice to see wilderness areas protected when capitalists could have mined and desecrated the area.
