BLM Winter Bucket List #27: Sonoran Desert National Monument, Arizona, for Day Hikes Among the Saguaro

BLM Winter Bucket List #27: Sonoran Desert National Monument, Arizona, for Day Hikes Among the Saguaro

 

The Sonoran Desert National Monument, a part of the BLM’s National Conservation Lands, contains more than 487,000 acres of Sonoran Desert landscape. In the most biologically diverse of the North American deserts, the Sonoran Desert National Monument includes an extensive saguaro cactus forest and three distinct mountain ranges - the Maricopa, Sand Tank, and Table Top Mountains. The monument is also home to three congressionally-designated wilderness areas, many significant archaeological and historic sites, and remnants of several important historic trails.
