Stop by our Fitness Center or Pro Shop for trail maps, backpacks, snacks, and information. For bike rentals, please stop by the Gift Shop (after Gift Shop hours, please see a bellman or security for bike rentals).

The Hummingbird Trail is a 2/3 mile (round trip) paved pathway with picnic ramadas, benches, plant identification signs and interpretive displays. This nature trail begins near the Sonoran Spa where cottontail rabbits often feed on the grass, and you'll see and hear many desert birds as you walk along. Look among the bushes and cacti for their nests.
The Saguaro Trail is a 2/3 mile unpaved loop through beautiful desert terrain. This nature trail is divided into two shorter sections - the Coyote Loop and the Javelina Loop. You may notice tracks of rabbit, raccoon, coyote, roadrunner and other desert animals along the trail.
