The guy without a pair of binoculars is the odd man out at Madera Canyon, where bird-watching is the activity of choice. Migrating flocks rest at Madera, and the Santa Rita Mountains' bird-filled trails begin at the campground and picnic areas. Elephant Head Mountain Bike Route provides a challenging ten-mile route for bikers. After an exhausting ride, folks can check into one of the canyon's small lodges or pitch a tent at the campground. –Bill Weir
