Murray Springs Clovis Site: General Info

by Basaic

The Murray Springs Clovis Site is one of the oldest sites ever excavated in North America. It shows evidence of human habitation in the San Pedro Valley area 13,000 years ago. That would make it during the end of the last ice age or during the Pleistocene Era. It offers a rare glimpse into conditions and life during that time. There are more Clovis Sites in the San Pedro Area than any other place on the continent. Clovis Sites get there name from the first such site discovered just outside Clovis, New Mexico in 1932. It is widely believed the Clovis people came from Asia and walked across a land bridge to the Americas about 15,000 years ago, arriving in what is now Arizona about 13,000 years ago.

Currently the Murray Springs Clovis Site has a short interpretive trail loop that is very informative for anyone wishing to learn more about life in the area 13,000 years ago. It also has a trail that connects with the San Pedro Trail and leads to other attractions. The San Pedro Trail will eventually become part of the Arizona Trail which will reach from Mexico to Utah.

Ramsey Canyon: The Trail

by Basaic

The trail up Ramsey Canyon to the Overlook rises 700 feet in 1 mile. It is fairly rocky and has a number of switchbacks. The trail follows the creek and crosses it several times. If you hike about .5 miles past the overlook you will join other trails.

Carr Canyon: Carr Cabin

by Basaic

Another place to hike near Sierra Vista (it is actually in Hereford) is Carr Canyon. The best thing to do first, especially if it is your first visit, is to stop at the visitor's center at Carr Cabin. They have information about the area, a nice learning center for the kids, and a bad map of the Carr Canyon Nature Trail. Settlement in the Carr Canyon area began when it was still called McCloskey Canyon and the Tombstone Gold and Silver Mill and Mining Company built a sawmill here in 1878.

Hustle and Bustle, Arizona

by GoldenHaze

"It Grows!"

I lived in Sierra Vista for 9 years, and the year after we left, the population and economy of this town exploded. Sierra Vista is situated next to a military town, Ft. Huachuca, from where it used to receive most of its business. I don't know what's happened recently, but I don't think the surge in popularity of Sierra Vista is attributable to the Fort (or Cartchner Caverns in Benson, either). Anything you could possibly want (within reason) can be found in Sierra Vista. There's a little something for everyone, and it's just an all-around great place. I wish I lived there now!
