AAA Editor Notes
Picacho Peak State Park, .5 mi. s. off I-10 exit 219, is the site of Arizona's westernmost Civil War battle. In 1862 a dozen Union soldiers defeated 10 Confederate cavalrymen. The park is home to the 1,500-foot peak that was used as a landmark for settlers traveling between New Mexico and California. The Mormon Battalion constructed the road used by the forty-niners and the Butterfield Overland Stage.

Today trails meander throughout the park and to the top of the peak. A Civil War reenactment is held each spring.

Pet friendly (call for restrictions/fees.). Camping is permitted. Picnicking is permitted.
