About

Peaks Valley Preserve was created to be a space where people can camp out in the wild, but still have amenities- like power (solar power generator, not enough for RV though), water, and a bathroom. This 5 acre property was developed with nature in mind, and we aimed to keep it as natural as possible as most of the land was left wild, for your hiking and viewing pleasure! Primary vegetation are Mesquite trees, Cholla cactus, Turpentine bushes, Yucca. Tons of privacy, as there are few neighbors nearby and the roads bordering the property are lightly travelled. Road was recently expanded to be levelled and widened. Feel free to hike around the 5 acres, boundaries are the road to the South and East, and private property signs to the North and West. This is a natural area, so be wary of wildlife dens, tracks, and scat.

Settled only a few miles from the gorgeous Chiricahua mountains in the charming rural community of Sunizona, there are ample opportunities to see wildlife (coyote, javelina, jackrabbits, unique birds and more have all been spotted on the property), and explore the area. From the nearby Turkey Creek (runs in the summer and must be crossed to access the property), to the 360 degree views of "Sky Island" mountain ranges, this property is centrally located to allow full exploration of everything Cochise County has to offer! In the winter, be sure to see the Sandhill Cranes during their migration- an incredible sight to behold. There is plentiful hiking in the surrounding areas, and on occasions you can spot Coatis, mountain lions, eagles, and maybe even a jaguar!

Immerse yourself, not only in the beautiful nature, but also the rich history this area has to offer. From the Native American tribes who called this place home, to the rise and fall of the Wild West, journeying through this land certainly takes you back in time! Be sure to see the world's largest Rosebush in Tombstone, you won't regret it. There are numerous ghost towns in the area as well, worth the visits!

The weather in this region is wonderful- just be wary of heat in the early summer and monsoons/storms in the mid/late summer. AWD/4x4 vehicles recommended, but not required as the property is off a well maintained dirt road. During monsoon season, the creek may flow, making SUV/trucks recommended.

Nearby towns: Sunsites, Tombstone, Bisbee, Sierra Vista, Portal, Tucson (1.5 hours away)

Nearby attractions: Chiricahua National Monument, Dragoon mountains, Cochise Stronghold, Dos Cabezas Peaks, Whitewater Wildlife Draw, Ash/Ramsey Canyon (hummingbirds galore!)
