Patagonia Train Track Trail Description

The Patagonia Train Track Trail is a loop trail that begins and ends in the tiny Arizona town of Patagonia. One half of the trail follows the old railbed of the New Mexico and Arizona Railroad, which was active from 1882 until 1962. After the trail leaves the railbed, it circles around and returns to Patagonia, passing through part of the Nature Conservancy and Native Seed Search preserves.

The entire trail is in the Sonoita Creek flood plain. Birding in the area is excellent, and weekly bird walks are available. The entire area around Patagonia has a rich railroad, mining and ranching heritage.

Parking and Trail Access

The trailhead is located in downtown Patagonia, Arizona. Patagonia is located on State Route 82 approximately 60 miles southeast of Tucson, Arizona. A trail sign is located at the depot in the center of town, which has been restored as the Patagonia Town Hall. The sign includes a description of the trail and a map.

A brochure about the trail can also be obtained at the visitor center across the street. There is ample parking available in downtown Patagonia.
