Madera Canyon Review

With approximately 200 miles of scenic trails, the recreation area of Madera Canyon—which includes Mount Wrightson, the highest peak in southern Arizona, at 9,453 feet—is a haven for hikers and birders. Trails vary from a steep trek up Mount Baldy to a paved, wheelchair-accessible path. Birders flock here year-round; about 400 avian species have been spotted in the area.

There are picnic tables and ramadas near the parking area, and camping is available for $10 per night on a first-come first-served basis (the 13 campsites have drinking water and restrooms, but no showers or electric hook-ups). The Santa Rita Lodge, with charming cabins and a gift shop, is also here.
