Freeman Homestead Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This nature trail explores the homesteading period in what is now Saguaro National Park."

"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."

Good trail for kids but nothing special if you're looking to do some real hiking.
