Sierra Vista Recreation Area

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

The Sierra Vista Recreational Area incorporates several mountain ranges which are separated by rolling hill county and some of the Southwest's most extensive grasslands. The area includes the Huachuca, Patagonia and Whetstone mountains and the Canelo Hills.  These areas were once the focus of extensive mining activity and their canyons and ridges are rich in the history of those colorful days.

An extensive network of trails provides access to the Huachuca Mountains and to the 20,190 acre Miller Peak Wilderness.

In Ramsey Canyon, where miners once sluiced, blasted and tunneled for gold and silver, birdwatchers have found a gentler bonanza.

A number of scenic drives cross the area's broad grasslands, and anglers find their reward in Parker Canyon Lake where stocked trout, as well as other species, challenge fishermen.
