What if we told you that one of the most breathtaking scenic overlooks in Arizona was accessible via an easy trail that’s less than a mile long? It sounds too good to be true, but sometimes, reality eclipses even our wildest dreams. The Valley View Overlook Trail in Saguaro National Park offers sweeping, panoramic vistas of not only the park itself, but the desert landscape beyond. You can see all the way to Picacho Peak from the summit!

For more information about the Valley View Overlook Trail, including the entrance fees for Saguaro National Park and directions to the trailhead, please visit the National Park Service website.
