Love it for the horses

Beautiful hike! First half of hike shut off and stopped recording till half way into the hike when I looked at my phone to check progress. Had to add the extra mileage on at the end by driving out so I get the actual miles my husband and I hiked. Had a great time visiting the cemetery, and we watched sunset and also got to see the railroad tracks and townsites. One of my favorite exploration/adventure hikes I’ve done. Ended up being a mile longer than the hike actually states. We really did 4.9 miles instead of 3.9

Easy, flat trail with some neat sights and views of the river make for a great hike. Fairbank has a few buildings including a small museum and gift shop. There's is ample parking and clean pit toilets. We visited on a Sunday in March and there were about 10 cars in the lot.

Very nice trail especially along the river. We took the loop, but enjoyed the river side of the loop the most. We only saw one other couple on the trail. Very peaceful and quiet with some interesting sites along the way. We viewed the cemetery and the mill ruins, and found an abandoned railway station on the way back to Fairbank. All in all it was a very nice day and an easy hike.

Check out our video here! https://youtu.be/2PbRrNwQdmw The Fairbanks Loop Via San Pedro River Trail looked like an easy uneventful hike. Wow, were we wrong. We walked along the wall of an abandoned silver ore processing plant, and an open silver mine pit. We also observed a herd of deer drinking in the San Pedro River with Arizona’s spectacular sunset in the background. It was well marked and had posts giving us historical information along the way. This is a very flat and easy hike. You will also pass by the ghost town on the way back to the parking lot.

Great trail for a quick, fun trek. Visit the historic Fairbank townsite and schoolhouse.

Mostly a dirt road. This is a scenic historic drive best done in a high clearance vehicle. Four wheel drive is not required. The route crosses desert and grass lands leading to a low mountain pass of oaks, pinyon pine and juniper trees between Tombstone and Sulphur Springs Valley in the Dragoon mountains. An area used by Cochise, leader of the Chiricahua Apache. Parts of the route were also used by the US Cavalry between Fort Bowie and the San Pedro Valley.
