    We visit several times a year. We bring our horses to ride and the trails are beautiful and well marked. Big area to park the horse trailer. The campground hosts are very helpful. A great way to spend an afternoon.

    Always a Peaceful, filled with beauty. You can go as high as you want, there are many layers to Carr Canyon. We drove half way and hiked the rest.

    Enjoyed our visit for birding, hiking and enjoying the history of the ranch. Huge toads in the pond as well as a king snake passing right in front of me near near the pond!

    Took two quads (Adult and 8 yr old). Ventured for miles. Stopped at two pictograph sites and picnic’d at the top before saw hill trail. Great views. Perfect for getting outdoors. Short easy trip within Sierra Vista - just go. Don’t be lazy, you’ll regret you never went.

    A wonderful place to watch hummingbirds. We sat at the main viewing place for an hour. At any time there were 30-50 hummingbirds, at least 4 species!

    To help with directions, you drive to the end of the canyon road (dirt) park in the parking spaces, then walk up past the sign that says private property. There is a small area where there are a few birds by a gazebo. Carry on past along the fence, there is another gate. Put your $5 in the box, go through the gate walk up the path, over the bridge on your left then up the the covered seating area.

    If you see the dogs, don't panic they're friendly!

    It's not a hard walk up but might be tricky if you have a physical disability. Certainly no good for wheelchairs.

    Everybody were smiling. I like that!

    We bought some fruit and vegetables.

    We bought ironwood carvings.

    There was fudge also. Wow!

    Clothing, toffee and way more.

    There was music.

    I liked that!

    There were a lot of cars.

    Beautiful location just South of Sierra Vista. Easy to get to, plenty of parking at the trail head. Nice out and back hike; plenty of shade on the trail that follows the creek up the canyon. The trail is not marked but fairly easy to follow. Good for kids on the lower part of the trail. Good for pets.

    The scenic views from the Memorial are well worth the drive. We were also fascinated with the history that was provided regarding the Coronado Expedition.

    This is a very old military cemetery on Fort Huachuca. There are also civilians from long ago interned here. It is interesting and a vital part of the history of the area.

    The Spanish seemed to find their way here with little trouble, except for the Apache, but travelers today would have a hard time finding it given the lousy directions most other reviews and Apple's Map App gave! So here, hopefully, are better directions. Going south from Benson or north from Tombstone go west on 82 for 5.5 miles. When you get to Fairbank Historic Townsite keep going another 1.8 miles west and turn to go north on In Balance Ranch Road. Go another 1.8 miles (just past Trails End Rd) you'll see a large parking area on the right. Park there and walk through the gated entry. Now here's where i also got a lot of confused directions. The walk to the ruins area is about a mile east across the desert and continues south along the old railroad grade. When you reach the ruins area, which is well marked with a large sign, there is a half mile loop trail that takes you through the Presidio area with descriptive signage about what used to be there. Some partial adobe walls are still in evidence but not much more. The most enjoyable part is the scenery and relative isolation as-well-as a nice walk. It was a warm day in Feb when we went and some water is still advisable for yourself or pets.

    If you can get on post, this is a great museum to visit. I am a retired Army artillery officer & during my career I worked with military intelligence many times. Visiting this museum brought back many memories. The only thing I would caution you about is that we had several issues with our gps sending us to wrong places while we were on post. Also, you may not leave post the same way you got on.

    Let me just start off by saying I'm not a big Library guy. But, my wife is and she wanted to check it out. My last experience in or near a library was homeless people hanging out & poor parking options. I can tell you if you like that then this place isn't for you. Here you will find ample parking, a friggin' Cafe and . ..wait for it, no panhandlers. The inside pretty much reminds me of any library and truthfully the last time I cared to go into one, they still loaned out records and had card files lol. I think this place is very nice though and I can't wait to beat the heat sipping a coffee with a good book in hand.

    In Memoriam Arizona's Confederate Veterans, who sacrificed in the struggle for independence.

    The soldiers had small a small tomb with their name.

    On the floor ,they names the names of those who died.

    We salute our military. The US flag was fully open.

    There was also a place with 3 bells. That was unique.

    It is a beautiful with several mountains.

    A must see!
