Improving Recreational Trails

Saguaro National Park offers nearly 200 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails -- presenting visitors of every ability with a variety of recreational experiences.  The park's trails connect with the region's extensive (and popular) trails network, and are a stone's throw from "The Loop" -- Tucson's 110-mile urban trail, encircling the entire city.

Tucson is also well-known as one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the nation, with more than 730 miles of designated bikeways that connect to popular cycling routes through both the east and west districts of the park.  In 2012, the 2.8-mile Hope Camp Trail in the park's east district was opened to bicycle use as a multi-use trail.

Each year, with support from Friends, Saguaro National Park is able to complete 60 miles (or 1/3 of the trails in the park) of trail maintenance and rehabilitation.
