The Valley View Overlook Trail at Saguaro National Park in Tucson, Arizona is an easy 0.9 mile out-and-back hike up to a lookout point overlooking the Avra Valley and distance mountain ranges.
The hike technically starts off at the trailhead for the Bajada Wash Trail - follow this trail for 0.1 miles until you reach a trail junction. Cross the first trail junction and take the Valley View Overlook Trail directly across from the intersection.
The trail will then head gradually uphill to yet another trail junction - stay left at this intersection to stay on the Valley View Overlook Trail. Finally, you'll reach the end of the trail where two benches, facing in opposite directions, allow you to take in the views. To the northwest is the Avra Valley and to the southeast is a much smaller valley of Saguaro National Park.
