Las Cienegas National Conservation Area Information

The Las Cienegas National Conservation Area is an often overlooked protected landscape. Casual hikers and mountain bikers however love its laid-back pace and easy-going tours through prime Sonoran Desert vegetation. The area stretches from the northern foothills of the Santa Rita Mountains sky island, to the foothills of the sky island directly to the north, the Rincon Mountains. Many people have begun to experience the tranquility of the area by hiking the Arizona Trail, which makes excellent use of the BLM land. Those hiking from the south will experience a quick transition from high desert grasslands vegetation to signature Sonoran Desert cactus and plants that southern Arizona is so well known for.
