I want to do a point to point backpacking trip in east Saguaro. Can i get uber to run the shuttle, since we only have one car?
I'm sure you could get an uber, why not just try it in the app?
The only way I know to do a point-to-point in Saguaro East is to end up on an unpaved forest road on one end, and that would probably not jive with a rideshare service. Are you doing part of the Arizona Trail, or going up to Rincon Peak? If you can end on a paved road, then it shouldn't really be an issue to get a rideshare. The trailheads at Speedway and Broadway have cell service. The area around the park visitors center should as well.
Thank you for the reply. I'll try it.
I'm curious -- were you able to get a car to pick you up? A friend and I are also considering a point-to-point backpack in east Saguaro in November, and we are wondering the same thing. Also, I'm curious: what trails did you do, and would you recommend them?
Thanks for any insights!

Fully agree with Bob, try contacting the OP to see what they did.
The only option I can think of would be an uber. You can download the app and give it a try, put in the point where you want to start from and an ending point, see if it gives pricing.
Which side of Saguaro are you referring to? Saguaro East has some great hiking, best in Tucson in my opinion.
Here is their map:
I cannot offer hiking advice as you want. I would say avoid javelinas which often travel in packs with young. If you don't know what they are, they are also known as peccaries. They are not wild pigs or wild boars. They are their own species of herbivores. The adults can be dangerous especially if accompanied by young. I have seen them when I have hiked Saguaro East, particularly in the northern extent of the park.
