Visitors traveling on I-10 in southern Arizona can’t miss the outstanding 1,500-foot-high Picacho Peak State Park. Enjoy the view as you walk along the paths that lead up to the summit, and often in the spring on a sea of wildflowers.

Park facilities include a visitor center with exhibits and a gift shop, hiking trails, playground, historical markers, a campsite (with or without electricity), picnic areas, Ramadas, barbecues, a garbage dump, toilets and showers.
