Just a day trip away from Tucson & 4 miles shy of the border of Mexico is a rare opportunity to look back at over a century of Arizona's mining history. From a once-thriving community of 1,200 people to a modern-day ghost town, a trip to Ruby is sure to be unforgettable. Our gates are open from 9am-dusk Wednesday through Sunday for self-guided tours. Please follow signs for Caretaker and pay and check-in before touring the town. The $15 per person fee includes a map of Ruby, a day pass to the ghost town, and access to over 350 acres of trails, two lakes, and incredible biodiversity. PLEASE NOTE that NO open fires are allowed at Ruby at this time.
