The Anza trail runs from southern Arizona to San Francisco and is managed by the National Park Service. It ties in nicely with the Tumacacori Mission and Tubac Precidio. The portion that runs along the Santa Cruz River is a very peaceful walk. Unfortunately, there is much trash, mostly from Mexico, carried by the river when it floods. Otherwise, I... 更多
We were dropped off at Tumacacari Mission and walked back to the Tubac Golf Resort. This was an easy 4.5 miles that was mostly flat and shaded. We saw lots of gorgeous cottonwoods, crossed over the small Santa Cruz River, so small, I actually thought it was a stream, walked through the Presidio and back to the Resort. Our friends... 更多
This was a short walk from our lodging in Tumacacori. 4 miles up to Tubac. you have to cross a little stream, used as a horse and walking trail, rated as easy walking, but nice distance if you want it all the way.
The 3.5 mile walk between the Tubac Presidio and Tumacacori Mission is interesting for nature and history. Following the Santa Cruz River, which flows to some degree for most of the year in this stretch, the trail is level, easy and well marked. Shaded by overhanging trees, the path meanders lazily between the two important historical sites with occasional river... 更多
We've hike this trail on numerous occasions and each time we find something new. You will see a variety of birds, animals and such. The one thing I would caution each hiker, is to watch out for illegals who use this trail. We had an experience with a not so good illegal on one of our hikes, so please keep... 更多
Spent at few days in the Tubac, Arizona area and was able to hike the Anza Trail on two occasions. The trail is very easy to find and has many different eco-systems. Part of it is very shaded with the river close by and other areas open to lovely meadows. Lots of birds make their home in the area.
We were in Tubac for the month of February and walked the trail every other day. You don't feel as though you're in Arizona. Most of the trail is in the woods. Great place for "Birders"
I make this a part of my annual visit to Tubac. Birders favorite, too. It is a dirt trail, so I would not recommend open toe shoes...closed toe walking shoes are best. Otherwise, it is easy walking.
