“A 1,500-foot peak”

Visitors traveling along I-10 in southern Arizona can’t miss the prominent 1,500-foot peak of Picacho Peak State Park. Enjoy the view as you hike the trails that wind up the peak and, often in the spring, overlook a sea of wildflowers. The park and surrounding area are known for its unique geological significance, outstanding and varied desert growth, and historical importance. The unique shape has been used as a landmark by travelers since prehistoric times. One of the first recordings was in the 1700s by the Anza Expedition as it passed through the area. The park facilities include a visitor center with exhibits and a gift store, hiking trails, playground, historical markers, campground, picnic areas, ramadas, grills, dump station, restrooms, and showers. The group use areas, for day & overnight use, are available by reservation. Before you hike, be prepared with enough water and proper footwear as the trails are steep and challenging.

Cool park with a bunch of big cacti, we climbed today and you definitely will need a lot of water and recommend bringing gloves, the climb is cool and there’s cords to hold on to at points but with the heat can get tiring, you hike up a way then have to hike back down to get to other side of cliff to hike back up to make to complete top

Our first peek at a real desert! We didn't make it far in the 110 degree heat, but it was great to see all the cacti. Definitely make sure you have water with you!
