Saguaro East–Rincon Mountain District
Last month we visited Saguaro West–Tucson Mountain District and today we visited Saguaro East–Rincon Mountain District. Both are districts of the Saguaro National Park. One being on the west side of Tucson and the other on the east side of Tucson.
70 percent of the park is designated as wilderness area with 130 miles of hiking trails. Bernie didn’t feel up to hiking, so we just drove around the Cactus Forest Drive, an eight-mile paved scenic drive that winds through a saguaro forest. Here are some pictures from our drive:
- Gasoline: none
- Lodging: free
- Admission: free with Bernie’s Interagency Senior Pass ($10 value)
