Aravaipa Canyon, 11 miles long with 1,000-foot canyon walls, presents outstanding scenery, wildlife, mountain vistas, saguaro forests, and a rich history.
Seven species of native fish, desert bighorn sheep, and over 200 species of birds live among the shady cottonwoods along the constantly flowing waters of the Aravaipa.
The Canyon was described by Arizona Hiking Trails as "a paradise on earth! Neither words nor pictures can do this place justice. . . It is absolutely amazing.
The Ranch is a 1.5 hour pleasant drive from Tucson and 2 hours from Phoenix.
Come with a group or with your family for the day, weekend or week.
A unique, refreshing and healing experience awaits you.
"Walk quietly in any direction and taste the freedom. . .Climb the mountains and get their tidings.
Nature's peace will flow through you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
- John Muir
