Description

Loma Verde Trail starts off Cactus Drive at the Loma Verde Trailhead. As you drive through Saguaro National Park, the Loma Verde Trailhead is a great stop to park and explore the desert through a series of trails.

The Loma Verde Trail is well maintained with minimal change in elevation. This is a relatively easy trail offering great views of saguaro cacti and desert life. This can be an out and back journey on the Loma Verde Trail or you can enjoy making this longer by connecting to the network of trails in the area and returning to the Loma Verde Trailhead by different trails. Please make sure you have a map, one can be obtained at the Saguaro NP Visitor Center, in order to not get turned around among all the trails in the area. You can also use the Trail Run Project mobile app to help find your way.

The Loma Verde Trail ends on the north end when it connects with the Shantz Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Variety of desert plant life including saguaros, chollas, and mesquite trees.
