Horses
..... Trail rides for 1 to 2 hours, all-day rides, off-the-ranch rides, and all-inclusive riding programs are specifically designed for your equine experience.  There is a category to fit your needs, and a horse to fit your riding skill level.  Details can be found in our "Riding" page.   And of course once the ride is finihed, you'll want to relax in our swimming pool and jacuzzi. 

Labyrinth .....The Triangle T Texas Canyon Harmony Labyrinth, a seven circuit labyrinth, is an exact copy of the Tohono O’odham design except that there is an opening into the center circle so that walkers can stay and meditate and reflect there. Built in a nest of boulders to the east of the building housing the dining hall, it is a public, permanent, outdoor labyrinth approximately twenty-four feet in diameter.

Jeep Tours ....Let Into The West Jeep Tours take you to places you never knew existed in Tombstone Arizona and the surrounding Southern Arizona area!

Triangle T Historic Ranch is located in the heart of Cochise County in the Southeast Corner of the State of Arizona. Cochise County is considered to be high desert grasslands with elevations from 3500' to 6000'. Several mountain ranges run through the county with the highest peak in the Chiricahua Mountains. Southeast Arizona is at an ecological crossroads, where habitats and species from the Sierra Madre of Mexico, the Rocky Mountains, and the Sonoran and Chihuahuan deserts all can be found. The abrupt rise of mountains like the Huachucas harbor rare species and communities of plants and animals. The southeastern part of Arizona is rich in history, natural wonders, birds and native vegetation. Agriculture, ranching, mining, army base, tourism and many other jobs make up the base of the economy.

Tucson - Only 60 miles away, Tucson (Arizona's second largest city) offers a wide variety of art and culture. Tucson is one of the oldest continually inhabited areas in North America. Hohokam Indians lived and farmed here for 4,000 years before Spanish missionaries and soldiers arrived in the late 1600s. In the 1700s, these "newcomers" established the Presidio San Agustin del Tucson and the Mission San Xavier del Bac -- the two most iconic and historic structures in the region. "The Old Pueblo," as the adobe-walled Tucson Presidio became known, is Tucson's nickname to this day.
