The trailhead for hikers begins at the Tubac Presidio for a four-mile section of the Anza Trail which leads to Tumacácori National Historical Park and crosses the Santa Cruz River. The route to Tumacácori National Historic Park is a straight four-mile trail making for an eight-mile round trip. There is also a nearby northern two and one-half mile route of the Anza Trail. Maps of three loops of shorter length are available in the Visitor Center. Please call ahead for information about trail crossings, especially during the rainy season, as flooding will make the river crossings inaccessible.
