Saguaro National Park East: Garwood Dam Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This enjoyable loop is one of dozens that can be put together from the dense network of trails lacing the northwestern corner of the national park. Unlike most of the other loops, this one provides 760 feet of elevation gain, allowing much better views than the lower trails immediately to the west.
The thick saguaro forest includes the rare cristate form of the cactus, and a small dam and water tank provide insights into Tucson’s history three-quarters of a century ago."
