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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
