Location and Local Attractions

SaddleBrooke Ranch is nestled in the high Sonoran desert of Arizona, making it a wonderful destination for those who are seeking easy access to outdoor activities. The nearby Santa Catalina Mountains are perfect for day trips or weekend excursions. Its location in the high desert town of Oracle provides refuge from the congestion of bigger cities, and the summers are generally more tolerable because of its higher elevation.

The Coronado National Forest is just a short drive away, and it offers 1.78 million acres of wide open spaces and stunning views. Popular recreation activities in the Coronado National Forest include camping, birding, hiking, horseback riding, and visiting historic sites. During the winter months, skiing is also available at Mt. Lemmon Ski Valley in the Santa Catalina Mountains.

Although SaddleBrooke Ranch offers the rural charm of a high desert town, it is just under 30 miles from downtown Tucson, making it easy to take day trips to the city. Visitors to Tucson can check out historic Fourth Avenue, known simply as the “4th” to locals. This funky area is home to local artisans, eclectic boutiques, handcrafted wares, cafes and restaurants, and more. Every spring and winter, Fourth Avenue hosts its famous street fair, which draws in thousands of locals and tourists alike.

With its resort-like grounds surrounded by the beauty of the Sonoran high desert, SaddleBrooke Ranch offers a lifestyle that is vibrant, luxurious, and carefree. View SaddleBrooke Ranch’s community page to learn more about this unique 40+ active adult community.
