Tubac is described as “Where Art and History Meet” but that’s not the only attraction to the area. Established in 1772 as a Spanish fort, Tubac has developed into a center of fine art and craftsmanship. Aside from the art studios and specialty shops, there are restaurants to satisfy most any taste.
It is also a good starting point for hiking ,birding, or just plain exploring the desert or a round of golf. A visit to the Tubac Presidio State Park, Arizona’s oldest, will complete an interesting day trip.
To get to the box, take I-19 to Tubac exit 34. Follow the signs to Tubac. Head north and look for the arch. The sign will direct you to Plaza road. Follow Plaza road to the stop sign at the end- Burrell St.. Turn right to the first street, Calle Egalsia, and turn left. Saint Anns’s church on the right, Floating Stone Spa on left. Look for the sign to County Park and turn right across gravel to the gate. Slow down and look to the right for a huge tree with 4 trunks. It stands out like a big 4 trunked tree. As you look at the tree from the road,look to the right. On the north side of the trunk, under a small rock and forest debris is the box. Re-hide the box under the rock and register and let us know the condition.
