Fodor's Arizona & the Grand Canyon 2014
Madera Canyon Review
This is where the Coronado National Forest meets the Santa Rita Mountains—among them Mount Wrightson, the highest peak in southern Arizona, at 9,453 feet. With approximately 200 miles of scenic trails, the recreation area is a favorite destination for hikers. Higher elevations and thick pine cover make it especially popular with Tucsonans looking to escape the summer heat.
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. The small, volunteer-run visitor center is open only on weekends.
