    This location marker is misleading, it is located on State Trust Land, not in the Natural Area. Go to the Arizona State Parks web page, Sonoita Creek State Natural Area for accurate maps. Go to "Friends of Sonoita Creek" for more information.
    Quite remote. Extensive trails for cool season hiking. Horses allowed along the creek. Permit required.
