Picacho Peak State Park Reviews
Adventurous Hiking! May 28, 2013
Picacho Peak State Park is located between Tucson and Phoenix along the Interstate highway. It is famous among hikers and the challenging Hunter trail.
Hunter trail is shorter, but just as challenging, it is a 2 miles hike to the peak. Sunset Vista trail is the other trail, a 3.1 miles hike to the peak. Whichever trail you choose to hike, it will take you through saguaros and the different cacti species common to Arizona. You will love the Ocotillos in spring when they are in bloom, and so are the Cholla cacti.
Picacho pak is 3,374 ft high, and so descending it gives you a beautiful birds eye view.
