Parker Canyon Lakeshore Trail
Phone: (520) 378-0311
This 5-mile trail, which circles the lake, begins and ends in the patio area in front of the boat dock and store. The lake edge can be reached from almost any point of the hike, providing opportunities to observe the waterfowl that make their home there or use it as a stopover on a seasonal migration. From the benches along the trail bald eagles and osprey can frequently be sighted. Mammals in the area include Coues white-tailed deer and coatimundi. There are a number of ways to get to Parker Canyon Lake from Cochise County, but the simplest is to take Hwy 90 to its intersection with Hwy 82 from Tombstone (Mustang Corners), take 82 west to Sonoita and then take Hwy 83 southeast, winding but very scenic, to Parker Canyon Lake.
