Description

The Mesquite Trail is part of a large network of trails within Saguaro National Park.

From the Loma Verde Trailhead, head north for a tenth of a mile. You'll see signage for the Mesquite Trail heading in a westerly direction.

The trail is flat with minimal elevation change. This can be an out-and-back run with family, or you can turn it into a longer run by connecting to various other trails in the area.
