History Walk to Presidio Santa Cruz de Terrenate

History Walk to Presidio Santa Cruz de Terrenate

The Friends of the San Pedro River offer a history walk on Saturday, February 20, at 1:00pm to the Presidio Santa Cruz de Terrenate.  As the Spanish extended their empire out of Mexico, they established a Presidio (fortress) along the San Pedro River in 1776.

Learn about the Presidio and what happened there to make the Spanish abandon the fort in 1780.  The walk is about 3 miles (round trip) and will take about 3 hours.  Bring good walking shoes, hat, water, sun protection, and a snack. Meet at the Presidio Parking Area (west side of the San Pedro River on Highway 82, turn north on In Balance Ranch Road, go 1 mile to parking area). For more information, call (520) 459-2555 or visit www.sanpedroriver.org
