Description

Starting at the Broadway trailhead, you'll need to connect to the Shantz Trail for a short distance before reaching the Pink Hill Trail. As you head east on the Pink Hill Trail, you have great views of the higher country. With all the large mountains in the distance, your final destination of Pink Hill may be a little uneventful. However, once you reach Pink Hill, which is a very small, elevated hill, you have nice views looking into Saguaro NP, the Rincon Mountains to the east, Catalina Mountains to the north, and Tucson Mountains to the west. You can even see Picacho Peak to the W/NW.

Flora & Fauna

Keep an eye out for views of saguaro, cholla and prickly pear cactus.
