Hittin’ the Trails 4 You – King Canyon Trail


If you want to take a hike to history, check out the King Canyon Trail.

This trail is located at Saguaro National Park West –  in the Tucson Mountains.

First, you’ll have an immediate split at the trailhead to take you on your adventure. Then, about a mile in, you’ll reach the first picnic area. To the left of the picnic area is a wash containing petroglyphs dating back to 900 A.D!

This hike also features great views, along with beautiful wildflowers and cacti.

This is a 7 mile out-and-back trail, and is rated moderate in difficulty.

A full map and directions are available here.
