Saguaro Trailhead Parking Lot

The design of the Saguaro Trailhead Parking lot has the goal of revamping the site to make it easier for vehicles to use and to allow more parking for the growing number of visitors. With designing the expansion of the parking lot many things had to be considered. Some of these things include the geometry of the site, the geology of the site, hydrology, and hydraulics of the site and the many Code considerations that come into play when working within an area like a national park. In total, the development of this site makes it so that many more visitors can enjoy the Saguaro National Forest without disturbing any of its beauty.
