Plan Your Visit


Gentle spring rains, turbulent summer skies, and the penetrating sun set the stage at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. Volcanic layered mountains, ribbons of washes and expansive valleys are the backdrop for this International Biosphere Reserve. Species of plants and animals that have adapted to desert life present themselves in daily and nocturnal performances. Take a front row seat along a scenic drive, a wilderness hike, or camping among the stars.

Over a hundred miles of scenic drives, dozens of miles of hiking trails, campgrounds, new exhibits and ranger programs help you experience, observe, and explore the American Desert.
