Arizona Things to Do: 555 reviews and 1,035 photos
After touring the main area of Fairbank, you can drive about 1 mile west, turn on In Balance Ranch Road and drive up to the parking area for the Presidio Santa Cruz de Terrenate. The Presidio Santa Cruz de Terrenate was established in 1775 when Francisco Tovar, and a company of 56 men, 352 horses and 51 mules marched north from Bonora, Mexico. Not much remains of the presidio today; but you can see the remains and learn how it looked when it was still functioning. The walk to the remains also features informative signs about the plants native to the area (see my Fairbank Page for details).
Directions: North of Arizona Highway 82 about 9 miles east of Whetstone.
