“A nice drive”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

This is a beautiful canyon, minutes from Tubac and Nogales. Worth the time to drive through, stretch your legs and take in the serenity that the quiet streams offer. A very pretty area, take a picnic lunch and enjoy the quiet.

“A great getaway from the summer heat!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Beautiful scenery, lots of trees, running streams... worth the drive to escape the heat. Watch out for the chickens as you drive up!

“MAJESTIC--EASY ACCESS LOCAL BEAUTY!”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

I ride my Harley up Madera Canyon every couple of months--then go on short hikes. Such a phenomenal view--so close to town, but really allows you to get away from it all.

“For the birds...”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

If you're into a good hike, bird watching (world famous) or a hell of a bike ride, you'll dig it. There are a handful of B&B's, a small lodge and unless I'm missing something, that's about it. It's a great spot and we absolutely love it. Check out the website before to get a jump on what trail(s) you want to tackle. There are a few different parking and picnic areas to choose from but it's all very easy to navigate. Watch for bikes and bears! Enjoy.
