Saguaro National Park East: Cactus Forest–Mica View Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This gentle stroll crosses almost the entire girth of Saguaro National Park East from north to south. For a quick look at the desert, you can just take the Mica View Loop (1.9 miles).
The northern part of the Cactus Forest Trail intersects several other short trails that can be explored with a map. The main trail intersects the Cactus Forest Loop Drive at two points; mountain bikes are allowed on the 2.6-mile-long section of trail between those points. The remains of late-19th-century lime kilns lie along this section."
