A picturesque site to explore. Peppersauce Cave is a limestone cave in the Santa Catalina Mountains. 23,000 visitors check out this stalactite-filled cave every year. It has about one mile of mapped passages. From the Big Room, there is a main lake inside that can be accessed by a 15-foot metal ladder. Spelunkers would need to bring ropes to rappel if they choose to avoid the easier route with the ladder. A great stop for adventure seekers out there!
Gila River Recreation Area
This river has it all with wildlife viewing, picnicking, camping, fishing, and river floating. Gila River Recreation Area includes 5 miles of the river for public recreational use by the Bureau of Land Management. Many wildlife can be found around the land. Warm water fish such as channel fish, carp, flathead catfish, and largemouth bass can be found swimming in the water. During May to October, the water will flow at 300 cubic feet per second, and that’s a great time to use your river floating equipment such as inflatable kayaks, canoes, and tubes. You deserve the rest and relaxation as you cruise down the sparkling river, basking in sunshine!
Mount Lemmon Trail
Large scale boulders and interesting formations that are sure to be Instagram worthy. If you stop at the sites to take a snack break or photos, you should be able to complete the hike in around two hours. There are no admission fees as it’s free to drive up to the mountain. You can even picnic on your way to the top. Once you reach your destination at the tip of the mountain, there’s even a gift shop and restaurant for your enjoyment. Be sure to stop at the visitor’s center, and if you have the chance, enjoy a gigantic, homemade cookie at Mt. Lemmon Cookie Cabin. You’ll be in for a treat!
