Added by Allison Herreid

A short, easy trail in Saguaro National Park ending in views of Avra Valley and Picacho Peak.

The Valley View Overlook Trail is located in the Tucson Mountain District (which west of Tucson) of Saguaro National Park. The access to this trail is about 3 miles north from the Red Hills Visitor Center.  From the visitor center travel 1.5 miles north on N. Kinney Road, then take a right on Hohokam Road for another 1.4 miles.  Parking for the trail will be on your left.   

This trail is quite easy and great for all ages. The trail is 0.4 miles one way and takes you through the beautiful saguaro desert.  The trail is well maintained and passes through two washes and has a very gradual ascent to a ridge.  Once you reach the end of the trail you are rewarded with a great view of the Avra Valley and Picacho Peak.
