San Pedro River Trail
In an arid state such as Arizona the importance of riparian areas cannot be overstated. Water, especially that which flows year-round, provides not only suitable growing conditions for various species of trees, shrubs, and plants, but also supports a variety of wildlife. The San Pedro River is a good example. Flowing north out of Mexico toward its eventual rendezvous with the Gila River at Winkelman, the San Pedro forms a 100-mile-long greenbelt in southeastern Arizona. Nearly 40 miles of the river—from the border to St. David—are included in the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area (NCA). Established in 1988 by an act of Congress, this 57,000-acre parcel of land is managed by the BLM. This hike begins at the Charleston Road and travels downstream (north) to the Narrows.
