This easy hike starts at the Saguaro nature trail and then follows the shore of Saguaro Reservoir around Peregrine Point to Camper's Cove. From there it cuts across a peninsula through some pristine desert to terminate at Burro Cove. A great hike for dogs and kids and other limited hikers. Also provides shoreline access for fishing, or just skipping rocks. OUTSTANDING FEATURES: Views of lake and surrounding basin, cacti, fishing access.
