Anza Trail Impassable in Areas
Due to a large flood event, sections of the Anza Trail between the mission grounds and Tubac are impassable to both hikers and horses. Visitors may use the trail north to the first river crossing, but travel beyond that point is not recommended.
In compliance with the Code of Federal Regulations and Superintendent's Compendium, Tumacácori prohibits pets from all government buildings and the mission grounds. More »
Due to moisture from rainwater wicking up into the adobe blocks at the foundation of the church, and other aging and deteriorating factors, it is necessary to replace some of the adobes from time to time. Although Tumacácori's preservation crew has modern mixers, wheel barrows, and other equipment, it is still a back-breaking process to make the adobe blocks in the traditional wooden molds and stack them for sun drying.
