MOUNTAIN BIKING


A local avid mountain biker calls Arivaca "Moab-South" due to the incredible amount of mountain biking terrain in this little known and remote area located a short one hour drive SW of Tucson's airport. The mountain biking is stellar along jeep trails that almost never see jeeps or other riders. There's no single track here, but you'll be hard pressed to find other people on these local rides. We've got four wheel drive only roads that make great riding for the daring and the timid. Many miles of these trails are just waiting for your tread to make its mark. The above picture is from one ride in a local mountain range called the Las Gijas. Local mountain ranges contain miles of loops that can take anywhere from 50 minutes to several hours to complete, depending on your pedaling desire. Local guides can take you on these roads where it is possible to see mule deer, javelina, and antelope crossing your path.

LOCAL BIRDING



The Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge is home to many migrating birds. Excellent opportunity exists to see rare and beautiful species here in the western flyway

ARIVACA LAKE

Above is a picture of Arivaca Lake which is located about seven miles from the Arivaca Townsite, on the way to the old mining town of Ruby. This lake was created many years ago to support local cattle and it exists today as a recreation site to fish and to swim. No gas engines.

LOCAL ASTRONOMY
Southern Arizona is a prized possession to astronomers from all over the globe. To Arivaca's west is Kitt Peak that contains one of the world's foremost solar research telescopes. In a mountain range to the east of Arivaca is the new Smithsonian Binocular telescope sitting atop Mt. Hopkins. Astronomers flock to this area for its dark skies; lack of clouds and the crisp clean air, which lends itself wonderfully to the clear photos that amateur astronomers live for. On a clear winter night, the haze of the Andromeda Galaxy is an unmistakable sight with the naked eye.
