San Tan Cacti Hike n’ Talk

Do you know the difference between a barrel cactus and a saguaro? The differences between cholla varieties?

We will hike along Stargazer and Moonlight Trails to identify various cacti and learn about their important roles in the desert ecosystem. You will also learn about the flowers they produce and when you can expect to see them during your springtime hikes. This 2.2-mile hike is on moderate terrain. Wear closed-toe shoes and bring water and a hat. Meet at the Main Trailhead map kiosk/picnic table. 9-10:30am.
