Horse Riding & Hiking Tuscon

STORY BY Patrick 23rd April 2024

Summer in Tucson, Arizona, promises great hikes, horse rides and clear skies full of stars.  Guest Ranches  in and around Tucson deliver the authentic Southwest experience without sacrificing things like hot tubs, Wi-Fi, and great big comfy beds. Guests can expect the relaxing elegance of a resort with the purifying solitude of thousands of acres of Sonoran desert, canyons, and foothills.


Tucson has beautiful places for riding and it is a huge part of Tucson’s culture. White Stallion Ranch and Tanque Verde Ranch are located on opposite sides of town, but each adjacent to Saguaro National Park. Although ranches have always focused on horseback riding, today guests can also participate in other activities such as rock climbing, biking, guided hikes, fishing, arts & crafts, and cowboy cookouts.


Tucson is known as a Hiker’s Haven as it is surrounded on both sides by the Saguaro National Park offering some of the most iconic treks in the region. There’s also Catalina State Park, Redington Pass and Mount Lemmon inviting hikers to strap on their boots and explore rich and abundant desert and forest areas. Hikers can dip their toes in Seven Falls Water Trail and Romero Pools, when they need a break from their long treks.
