Saguaro National Park East

Saguaro National Park East  Walking distance from Desert Dove Bed & Breakfast.

Whether you spend an hour or a day in the Saguaro National Park you cannot see it all. There are many trails, some you can enter outside of the main entrance on Old Spanish trail.  There are trail-heads along Freeman at Broadway and Speedway.

Some wild flowers are in bloom already with the hope of many more in the next few weeks.

Where our past lies underfoot

Saguaro National Park east of Tucson might look like a pristine preserve today – but it was once the turf of cowboys and kiln workers.
Relics of that workaday past remain in clear view along a new network of trails in the park. The trails take hikers and horseback riders past a lime kiln made of stone, a line camp site and windmill once used by cowboys, and other reminders of bygone days.
