About Javelina Picnic Area
The Javelina picnic area is nestled in the foothills of the Rincon Mountains. It is also the trailhead for the Tanque Verde Ridge Trail. A great trail for a day hike due to the great views of Tucson and the surrounding mountains. However it is narrow, rocky and steep. See Trail Favorites for a description of this trail. The Javelina Picnic Area is one of my favorites. It has a large parking area and about eight covered stone picnic tables.

About Saguaro National Park
Tucson, Arizona is home to the nation’s largest cacti. The giant saguaro is the universal symbol of the American west. These majestic plants, found only in a small portion of the United States, are protected by Saguaro National Park, to the east and west of the modern city of Tucson. Here you have a chance to see these enormous cacti, silhouetted by the beauty of a magnificent desert sunset.
