Ocotillo Trail Grand Opening and Guided Hike

Kartchner Caverns State Park

Sunday, April 22, 2018   10 a.m.

We are holding a grand opening event for the new Ocotillo Trail, followed by a guided hike for the public at 10:30 a.m. The ceremony will be held at the group use ramada.

Built in response to visitor requests for additional and more challenging trails at Kartchner Caverns State Park, the new trail is 1.75 miles through the foothills of the Whetstone Mountains. To access the trail, visitors must use the Foothills Loop Trail, bringing the total loop distance to 3.25 miles.

This trail is considered challenging. If you plan to participate in the guided hike, please wear closed-toe shoes, dress appropriately for the weather and bring plenty of water.
