Fire restrictions are in place at the park. Wood and charcoal fires are prohibited. Gas/propane cooking stoves are allowed for cooking only. Smoking (including e-cigarettes) is prohibited except in an enclosed vehicle.
Twenty miles of trails are available for hiking and eight miles of trails are shared with equestrians. A 1.5 mile hike of moderate difficulty called the “Overlook Trail” is close to Patagonia Lake State Park and is a great way to see 360 degrees of spectacular scenery. Most of the trails are more remote and the shortest round trip hike to the creek is three miles on the Sonoita Creek Trail.
At all times of the year, boots with good traction, sun protection, food, and water are recommended. The minimum elevation change on any route is 300'.
