On my way from Tucson down to Tombstone I had a stop at Fairbanks. It is a ghost town, which started to develop with beginning of the construction of the railroad in 1881. Its name comes from N. K. Fairbainks of Chicago, who was one of those financing the railroad. The houses where build between 1881 and 1920.
Beside the town there are several possible hiking trail as from here there is a connection to the San Pedro Trail.
