Written Directions

Start about an hour south of Tucson off I-19 in a town called Arivaca Junction. The route starts in Arivaca Junction as you simply head west out of town on W. Arivaca Road.

Scenery

Southern Arizona's best road within 100 miles with massive views of the desert and nearby mountains.

Drive Enjoyment

The only worry are cattle guards and the occasional cow. Great sweepers with instant elevation changes that makes the heart soar and all with little if any traffic! Beware the occasional cow and Border Patrol. I rode through two stops but they're nice guys doing a great job.

Tourism Opportunities

Arivaca has no fuel but a quaint little market with cold drinks and snacks. Remember, it's about the ride, NOT the food.

Riding Arivaca has a little bit of everything if your talking twisties, unfortunately there are alot of washes that run through the ride. A friend of mine lost it on one of those blind turns that had gravel from a wash, and it hadn't even rained in weeks. There are a few decreasing radius off camber turns throught the trip to watch out for also. I was alomst victim to one, thank god no one was coming at me in the other lane. Also alot of Border Patrol out there and for good reason!!

Continue through Arivaca and turn right at Sasabee Rd. This takes you into Three Points, turn right onto hwy 86 and back into Tucson for a nice loop. If you turn left at Three points, It takes you towards Kitt Peak Nat. Observatory and one can get out of the heat.

Fantastic Ride... There's definitely Fuel and Food. The road to Arivaca Lake, Ruby Rd., gets pretty patchy near the lake -- go slow, take it easy. Otherwise this is an AWESOME route.
