Presidio San Agustin del Tucson Museum

The Turquoise Trail

This historic walk, designed as a loop, begins and ends at the Presidio San Agustín del Tucson Museum, a reconstruction of the Tucson Presidio that was originally built in 1775. The Museum is located on the northeast corner of the original Presidio site. The complete walk (about 2 1/2 miles in length) takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours, but it can be done in segments, beginning and ending wherever you like. **Please follow the blue line on the street, not the map on this app (occasionally this app will try to take you on a non-pedestrian route). More than 30 restaurants are within a few blocks of the walk, providing plenty of opportunities for lunch or a break. Most of the sites on the tour are marked with historical plaques that provide additional information. Enjoy this walk through the heart of our city, which has expanded out from the adobe fort that was its beginning. ***Looking for a guided tour of the Turquoise Trail?
