Most visitors come to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in December, January, and February to enjoy the Sonoran Desert's winter warmth, but each season offers a unique perspective and experience. Choosing when to visit may depend on your length of stay and what you like to do. Leisurely hiking trails and those designed for the experienced hiker meander through a diversely vegetated landscape. Photography, night-sky gazing, wildflower walks, camping, ranger programs and, of course, the scenic drives are among visitors' favorite activities.
