Freeman Homestead Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This nature trail explores the homesteading period in what is now Saguaro National Park."
--Bruce Grubbs, A FalconGuide to Saguaro National Park & the Santa Catalina Mountains (Falcon Guides).
"This is a fun loop for families, with several interpretive stations providing information about the desert for adults, as well as kid-oriented questions or puzzles for the younger members of your group. The stands of saguaros are especially thick and impressive in this area.
There are steps and sandy spots in a few places, so strollers aren’t recommended. Sure, you could lope around the trail in 20 minutes, but it’s worth taking the time and enjoying this introduction to the national park."
--Rob Rachowiecki, Five-Star Trails: Tucson (Menasha Ridge Press).
