We had a very nice walk here on our visit to Tubac. We brought our yellow lab and there were a few places for her to get a drink of water so even though it was hot she could stay hydrated. It was shady in a lot of places too. People were generally good about picking up after their pets... More

It is 5 miles one way from the Tubac Golf Resort to the Tumamoc Mission. The trail frequently borders running water and is heavily shaded for much of the trip.

I'm a hiker...my husband is a golfer so finding a nice trail that is pretty and flat and makes us both happy s a great find. It is truly beautiful with the gorgeous Santa Rita mountains to look at. We didn't walk the whole 4.5 miles to the National Park. But...next time for sure.

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... More

Love the different topography, river flowing by, birds you can't see anywhere else. Refreshing for the soul and the body.

We started at the Tubac trailhead, and walked about a mile on the trail. It was disappointing at best. Minimal wildlife, dirt trail, some shade. At some point we'll start from the other end and hopefully it will be better.

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... More

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... More
