Saguaro National Park
|From the top of this trail map:
Sendero Esperanza (Hope Trail in Spanish) follows the sandy path of an
old| mine road through the saguaro forest for the first mile. The trail
then climbs a series of switchbacks to the Hugh Norris Trail, where
visitors can enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the park. After crossing
the high Norris Trail, the Sendero Esperanza descends past the Gould Mine
trail junction and joins the King Canyon Trail.
|Above is the sign at the head of the trail we will be following. We
walked from the "You are Here" sign, south past the Dobe Wash,
up the steep 1 mile climb to the junction of four trails. Then we turned
around and came back. You'll see it all below. The Desert Museum which you
have already seen, is directly south of where we were.
