Know as “The Loop,” to Tucson cyclists. The Saguaro National Monument East bike ride is one of the most popular rides in the Tucson area.
This is a spectacular circuit on the east side of Tucson that winds through a cactus forest to the base of the Rincon Mountains.
There is beautiful desert vegetation and occasional wildlife to be seen, so watch out for deer, bunnies and javalina particularly early in the morning.
NOTE: The Saguaro National Monument is a state park and does require a small fee to enter the park. Paying the fee is worth the ride!
