Runner Notes

The trail is wide and smooth from Mica View Picnic Area to Broadway Trailhead.

Description

Mica View Trail can be accessed from several trails within the network of trails at Saguaro NP. However, most people access this trail from within Saguaro NP by driving to the Mica View Picnic Area (high clearance recommended) or from the Broadway Trailhead.

Mica View Trail between Broadway Trailhead and Mica View Picnic Area is wide, well-maintained, and typically busy with runners. The portion of the trail from the Broadway Trailhead to Mica View Picnic Area is suitable for families with children.

Mica View Trail that heads southeast from the Mica View Picnic Area is narrower, but offers view of saguaros and desert vegetation.
