    An oddball hike because I left my phone on the roof of my car and went back for it, which ate up some time so I took a shorter route, only to detour at the end to fill out 3 miles. Turns out not all trails in this part of the park are alike in terrain. Creosote Trail has steps down into a shallow canyon. Kennedy Trail is a straight line on the map but up and down in real life. Both have dramatic views. Stock Bypass and Shantz are both sandy in spots.

    Just a way to do an easy 3.33 mile loop from the Broadway trailhead without using the paved part of Mica View.

    This was the usual Douglas Spring - Garwood - Wild Horse Loop with a little detour into the Shantz Trail at the end. Saguaros are starting to bloom. It’s hot but wasn’t too bad this evening (6 PM).

    It’s starting to get uncomfortably hot even as late as 5:45 PM. This loop has a little shade but not enough to counter late spring heat. Primarily saguaros, cholla and Palo Verde trees. Still beautiful and interesting. Saguaros are days away from blooming. Actual loop from parking is about 3.4 miles but I continued up Shantz Trail a short distance for sunset photos.

    This is the longest loop I’ve done to date in Saguaro NP: rated 3.7 miles on another app but closer to 4 miles. It’s also the prettiest loop. Some rocky bits, especially during elevation gain, but lots of flat ground and a fair amount of shade, which is important in mid-spring. Terrain changes several times. Watch for bees.

    A smidge more rugged than the trails off the Broadway trailhead and there’s less shade. Still an easy 2.32 mile hike and beautiful. Saguaros are beginning to bloom but heat is beginning to oppress.

    .7 miles of this easy loop is paved. Good side of this is that the hot pavement attracts lizards (and snakes). Very pretty, but it gets hot in late spring and summer. ‪Two miles in 100 degree weather at 5 PM (with pavement and almost no shade) is less pleasant than 3+ miles (no pavement, some shade) in 90-something degree weather at 6 PM on other trails nearby.

    The loop I wanted to take earlier in the week but didn’t have enough time. Beautiful and easy and fun. Only passed ONE person, on a Saturday!

    Easy, short, and beautiful. On different hikes I’ve seen a tortoise and a great horned owl.

    Passed 12 people today, all with good social distancing: 3 couples, 2 families of 3. Well, it is a Saturday, and Road is closed next week.

    Great moderate out and back hike. Close to town. Start early if you want to park near the trail head. Easy to follow trail. Terrain/grade varies. Trail was more crowded on our hike back late morning to mid day. The turn to Bridal Wreath falls is 2.7 miles up the Douglas Spring Trail, well depicted on the Gaia base map. The falls is another .3 miles off the Douglas Springs trail. To reach the pond at the bottom of the falls, you will need to pass over large stones. Watch your footing.

    Easy hike but great flora. Good for all abilities IF everyone carries water!

    Total elevation gain occurs in first 1.5 miles or so if going counter clockwise. Nice steps all the way up. After dropping into Dobe Wash trail it’s pretty flat with great scenery back to TH.

    Perfect hike for a rainy day. Minimal mud and great views of the misty Rincons.

    Not too steep, nice views. There still was some snow on the north-facing slopes on Feb 24. Must be brutal in the heat of summer.

    While the climb to Wasson Peak is challenging, the views at the top are well worth the effort. Will definitely go again with more friends!
