Explore the Living Desert’s network of well-marked trails ranging from 0.25 to 5 miles (0.4 to 8 kilometers) through the Sonoran Desert. Depending on the level of adventure you’re seeking, set out on the Inner Loop, Middle Loop or Wilderness Loop through the undisturbed wilderness. Note that the trails are closed during the summer due to very hot conditions.
