Oracle Historical Society External Link
The Oracle Historical Society has worked for a quarter of a century to encourage appreciation for the unique cultural and historic heritage of Oracle, Arizona, and the surrounding region. The society also operates the Acadia Ranch Museum (National Register of Historical Places) which houses a range of artifacts from the days of Oracle’s first multi-ethnic pioneers — including displays that touch on our extensive cattle ranch, health resort and mining histories — as well as a collection of prehistoric artifacts that tell the story of the region's earliest settlers. Call 896-9609 to schedule a tour. Normally open Saturdays, 1 pm to 4 pm.

Arizona Trail External Link
The Arizona Trail is a continuous, 800+ mile diverse and scenic trail across Arizona from Mexico to Utah. It links deserts, mountains, canyons, communities and people. Currently 94% of the trail is complete. The Arizona Trail Association's mission is simple: build, maintain, promote, protect and sustain the Arizona Trail as a unique encounter with the land.

Oracle Ridge Hiking Trail External Link
This trail follows one of the earliest known routes to the top of Mt. Lemmon. Second, it is believed to be the trail that John and Sara Lemmon followed, in the early 1880s, on their trip to the summit of the mountain which was later named in Sara’s honor. This trail is reportedly where biologist Lemmon saw his first Arizona pine. Actually a subspecies or variety of ponderosa pine, this was the first of roughly 100 plant species and subspecies Lemmon catalogued in the state’s southern mountains. National Forest Serice.

Peppersauce Campground External Link
Located along the Control Road up Mt. Lemmon’s north slope, this campground is tucked away in a shallow, tree-filled canyon cut by Peppersauce Creek through rolling foothills covered with grass, oaks and yucca. Campsites at Peppersauce are spread throughout a creekside oasis of enormous Arizona sycamores and Arizona walnut trees that cast deep shade in summer and a touch of color in autumn. These venerable trees (and some equally notable clumps of poison ivy) cling to the banks of Peppersauce Creek, which provides sufficient moisture for them to prosper in spite of the fact that its rocky streambed is dry most of the year. Open year round.

Biosphere 2 External Link
Serve as a center for research, outreach, teaching and life-long learning about Earth, its living systems, and its place in the universe. Hwy 77 (Oracle Rd).
