Hope Camp Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A day hike through the hills south of Tanque Verde Ridge, 2.8 miles one way.
This hike follows an old road through some of the newly acquired lands at the south end of Saguaro National Park. Although it lacks spectacular scenery, this area receives few visitors and offers a good chance to find some solitude among the cacti. The route wanders past several cow camps that hark back to the glory days of cowboying and visits dense stands of saguaro. The camps mentioned here are old cow camps, where dilapidated windmills and concrete water troughs are all that remain. Camping is not allowed in this part of the park."
