"Bikepacking," a form of nature exploration that's grown in popularity over the years due to its convenient combination of traditional nature touring and cycling, which allows travelers to cover more ground and therefore see more sights, is well-suited to warm and expansive environments like the Sonoran Desert in Arizona.
Taking this into account, Visit Arizona outlines the tour as a must for nature lovers who are looking to take on the desert, with wide, rugged, and quiet roads making it the perfect bikepacking destination. Visitors can set up a tour of the area or set out on their own in they feel comfortable, with the 21-mile Ajo Mountain Drive being the most popular ride in the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. As the park's name highlights, it is the only place there the organ pipe cactus is able to grow wild within the United States.
