    In 1751 some Pimas in the Altar Valley, southwest of Tumacácori, attacked the Spanish settlements there. Fearing retaliation from Spanish soldiers, those at Tumacácori fled to the hills. As a result, a 50-man presidio was founded at Tubac, and the mission at Tumacácori was resettled on the west bank.
    In 1767 King Charles III of Spain, for political reason, abruptly banished the Jesuits from all his realms. The Franciscans, who took over the missionary effort in Pimería Alta, inherited the woes that had frustrated the Jesuits: restless neophytes, Apache hostility, disease, encroaching settlers, and lack of government support. The Tubac garrison was transferred to Tucson in 1776, and by 1786 only a hundred Indians remained at Tumacácori. The next year an 80-man Pima company reoccupied Tubac, but as Apache pressure mounted, the nearby missions of Calabazas and Guevavi were abandoned.
    About 1800 Fray Narciso Gutiérrez began to build a large church to replace Tumacácori's modest Jesuit structure, but his mission's poverty and the Mexican wars for independence slowed construction. When a Mexican decree forced all Spanish-born residents to leave the country in 1828, Tumacácori lost its last resident priest. Scaffolding still clung to the bell tower. The Indians and a few settlers, with the aid of visiting native-born Mexican priests, hung on for another 20 years, but a series of Apache raids and the hard 1848 winter drove the last residents from Tubac and Tumacácori. The 157-year thread of continuity begun by Father Kino was now severed.

    The State Park contains the ruins of the Spanish presidio founded in 1752 and the first European settlement in what later became Arizona. Credit for this site becoming a State Park belongs, in large part, to interested and generous residents of the community. Frank and Olga Griffin persuaded the Santa Cruz Board of Supervisors to recommend and support the Tubac Presidio as the number one potential state park site in the County.

    About Temporal Gulch Trail
    Temporal Gulch Trail is one of the least traveled routes in the Santa Ritas. That’s not because this remote backcountry trail isn’t worth a visit, but because it’s more than just a little hard to get to. The north end of the gulch is accessible from Madera Canyon by hiking up the Super Trail #134 or Old Baldy Trail #372 to Josephine Saddle and then contouring around Josephine Peak to the head of the drainage. You can drive to the downhill end of the trail, but that requires winding over dusty roads for a considerable distance and bouncing the last couple of miles up a jeep track that can require a high clearance 4-wheel drive vehicle. Those who go to the trouble, however, generally find that the reward is well worth the effort. Temporal Gulch Trail wanders up a broad canyon along a picturesque stream punctuated with stepping stone crossings and a bubbly waterfall–when it has water in it. When it doesn’t, the riparian area is still a pleasant place to be, shaded by spreading sycamores and other desert canyon species clustered along the streambed. Other desert dwellers congregate here, too, and if you proceed quietly and watchfully you’re virtually assured of having a close encounter with a number of them. Colorful songbirds flash through the trees, and soft-eyed deer browse in the grasses and brush, sometimes scarcely taking notice of you. If you’re a history buff, there are a number of old mining works in the area; small diggings that have left only a tailings pile and a few pieces of litter-become-artifact to tell their story. All this is framed within a panorama that includes the peaks of the Santa Ritas and their foothills. Temporal Gulch Trail extends between the mouth of the gulch and Josephine Saddle where it intersects a number of other Santa Rita trails. One possibility for a loop trip is to take the trail to the saddle and then pick one of a number of routes up, around or over Mt. Wrightson to Gardner Trail #143 which leads to the Walker Basin Trail #136.

    At night, in the flicker of your dying fire, you may catch a glimpse of a notorious camp robber, the bandit-masked ringtail cat making off with a bit of tomorrow's lunch. Recently these wide-eyed relatives of the raccoon were designated Arizona's State animal in a poll of the state's school children. More likely you'll notice canyon wrens and hermit thrushes along the trail during the day. They'll catch your ear as well as your eye. If you hike to Taylor Cabin you'll see the picturesque lair of another of the canyon's historic residents, the American cowboy. The Parsons Spring Trail meanders up a fertile desert riparian area, a habitat as rare as it is productive. The Sycamore Rim Trail skirts the canyon's upper reaches through an area of secluded pools and tall forests.
    This area is sufficiently unique to have been the first in Arizona to be designated a Primitive Area. It later became a Wilderness Area in the 1984 Arizona Wilderness Act. A number of trails provide access to its beautiful and fragile landscape. This guide mentions only the most prominent. Those who wish to explore further will find much to reward their efforts.

    Tips for birding Sycamore Canyon Wilderness
    This scenic area is characterized mainly by pinyon-juniper on top and dense riparian within the canyon. White-throated Swifts and Peregrine Falcons occupy cliff edges. Listen for Canyon Wrens singing in any area. To hike up the canyon and bird the productive riparian habitat, start from Sycamore Canyon Rd in Clarkdale. The canyon starts in Yavapai County and ends up in Coconino County.

    About Sycamore Canyon Wilderness
    The second largest canyon to emerge from Arizona's Red Rock Country is a lesser known but just as scenic cousin of famous Oak Creek Canyon. But you won't find any roads, developed campgrounds or crowds in Sycamore Canyon, just 55,937 acres of wilderness marked by colorful cliffs, soaring pinnacles and one of the world's rarest habitats, a desert riparian area. The wilderness encompasses all of Sycamore Canyon from its forested rim near Williams, Arizona to its desert canyon mouth in the Verde Valley. This area is home to black bear and mountain lion as well as a number of less celebrated but just as notable creatures.
