Hittin’ the Trails 4 You: The Tanque Verde Ridge Trail

Looking for a challenging hike this weekend? Then the Tanque Verde Ridge Trail may be for you!

From saguaros to desert shrubs to scenery, this is a beautiful hike (especially during the spring season).

Keep in mind, this hike is quite the climb. Located at Saguaro National Park East, this 20 mile out and back trail has an elevation gain of over 4000 feet.

This is quite the workout weekend warriors, so the hike is rated moderate to difficult.

No matter how far you go, the views are spectacular.

A trail map and directions can be found here.
