Horseback Riding Trails Near San Cayetano Ranch

Sitting on 150 breathtaking acres, San Cayetano Ranch offers plenty of space for horseback riding. Our historic, tree-lined property is right next to trail riding, wilderness riding, forests and creek sites, making it the perfect place for horse boarding and riding. 


While we don’t currently offer horse riding instruction or riding camps, we do encourage patrons to explore the property and nearby equestrian trails:


Trail Riding in Arizona

  • Anza Trail at Tubac Presidio State Historic Park - Tubac Presidio serves as a trailhead for a four-mile section of the Anza Trail which leads to Tumacácori National Historical Park and crosses the Santa Cruz River twice. This is a straight trail, not a loop, making for an eight-mile round trip. 
  • Coronado National Forest - The Coronado National Forest consists of Five Ranger Districts and a Supervisor's Office. One District office is located in each of the following Southern Arizona Communities: Douglas, Nogales, Safford, and Sierra Vista. It’s a bit of a drive, but there are plenty of horseback riding trails. 
  • New Mexico & Arizona Railroad Trail - The New Mexico & Arizona Railroad Trail is a rustic hiking and equestrian trail outside of Patagonia, Arizona. Entrance fees apply.
  • Sonoita Creek State Natural Area - Sonoita Creek offers eight miles of trails for equestrians. Most of the trails are more remote; therefore, sun protection, food, and water are recommended year round. The minimum elevation change on any route here is 300'.


You can explore these trails and more when you board your horse at San Cayetano Ranch. We’re a full-service horse care ranch and outdoor wedding venue near Tucson. Feel free to contact us for more information.
