“Gain a different perspective of the Sonoran Desert by traveling along the Monument Wash Trail.”— Chris McD
Monument Wash Trail continues north for approximately two miles before ending at Speedway Blvd on the northern boundary of Saguaro NP. Just to note, there is no designated parking area for this trail on Speedway. You can return the same way, or feel free to leave the Monument Wash Trail by connecting to several east/west trails in the area and make a loop. For instance, a loop run starting at the Loma Verde trailhead could be Loma Verde Trail for .2 miles to Monument Wash Trail. Take Monument Wash trail north to Pink Hill (east) Trail. This sounds weird, but go west, on Pink Hill (East) trail to Loma Verde Trail. Take Loma Verde Trail south which takes you back to your car.
Please remember that navigating in a dry wash is a lot like running on the beach. While not difficult, it takes a little more effort than traveling on a firmly packed trail.
