Madera Canyon is just a one hour drive from Arizona Outback Inn. The drive there and back is an attraction by itself as your route takes you through the breathtaking Santa Rita Mountains and the Coronado National Forest.
As part of the Coronado National Forest preserve, Madera Canyon has picnic areas and miles of hiking trails.
The canyon attracts a vast array of migrating birds and is a favorite with birders. With more than 256 species of birds including fifteen species of hummingbirds, elegant trogon, sulphur-bellied flycatcher, black-capped gnatcatcher, flame-colored tanager, thirty-six species of wood warblers, Madera Canyon is a world class destination for bird watching.
Madera Canyon was originally named White House Canyon after a prominent white adobe house was built there in the late 19th century. The canyon was renamed sometime in the early 1900s, although some locals still use the original name.
