Located in the santa rita mountains, one of the most popular backcountry regions in southern Arizona, the 25,260-acre Mount Wrightson Wilderness was set aside by the 1984 Arizona Wilderness Act. The centerpiece of the wilderness is its 9,453-foot namesake peak, Mount Wrightson. A visible landmark from Tucson and its surrounding communities, the peak, familiarly known as Mt. Baldy, rises 7,000 feet above the Santa Cruz Valley floor, towering above the arid hills and grasslands leading into the wilderness. Continental Road, a paved road into the wilderness, travels through Madera Canyon, a bird-watcher’s paradise. Mexico is just a short distance south, and with birds migrating with ease from all directions, the canyon attracts great varieties of both common and rare birds. Two hundred and thirty different species of birds have been counted in Madera Canyon and more than one hundred species are known to breed there. The broadbilled hummingbird, sulphur-bellied flycatcher, elegant trogon, and flammulated owl are among the rare birds spotted in the canyon. This trail guide covers an area with 52 miles of trails.
