The Great Outdoors
Located within the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park is the 230 year old Juan Bautista de Anza Trail, which connected Nogales to San Francisco – a distance of over 1,200 miles. The nearest section of the trail runs along the Santa Cruz River, between Tubac and Tumacacori. South of the park, in nearby Nogales, is the Madera Nature Trail, home to over 240 species of birds and some of the most spectacular view of Mt. Wrightson (elevation 9,453 ft.).
For those who like to catch what they eat, Patagonia Lake is the perfect place to be. Located south of Tucson, the lake is well stocked with bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish. Located less than seven miles away, the Rex Ranch offers various riding packages along the spectacular De Anza Trail during the winter, fall and spring months. Also nearby is beautiful Tumacacori National Historic Park, home to three late-17th century Spanish colonial missions.
