Where the mountains meet the desert, you’ll find the quirky, western town of Oracle nestled among boulders, oaks and grasslands. Located 35 miles from central Tucson in the northern foothills of the Catalina Mountains, its elevation is a cool 4,500 feet. Its history dates from the 1800s, when it was a stagecoach stopover with guest ranches, small mines and accommodation for visitors seeking our clear, dry air. Today Oracle is the home of six guest ranches, great local eateries & shops, Oracle State Park, the Arizona Trail, Arizona Zipline Adventures, Triangle L Ranch Sculpture Park, and Biosphere 2.
You can experience nature your way - by birding, hiking, camping, or mountain biking.
Come for a day, a weekend, or longer and get to know the beauty of our surroundings. There are plenty of things to do, or just relax amid rolling hills and cool oak forests.
