Sibley Mansion and Bluebird Mine Trail Professional Review and Guide
"These two short spur trails lead off from Creek Mining District Trail. The moderately rated spur to the Bluebird Mine is a scenic shelf road that leads to two old cabins and the remains of the mine. The Sibley Mansion spur travels an extremely difficult and rocky trail along Copper Creek to the remains of the 20-room Sibley Mansion.
Special Attractions: Easy trail winding through the Coronado National Forest and state lands close to Tucson; Access to many 4WD trails and backcountry campsites; Panoramic views of the San Pedro River Valley, Galiuro Mountains, and Rincon Mountains; Many hiking trails, including a short trail to Tanque Verde Falls. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions."
