The Hills is 10 pristine acres in north east Pima county - Benson/Vail. Well graded roads, most of the way. Right around the corner from the Winery but, next to zero traffic! The rolling topography makes for very challenging hiking! Bring your quads and fly down these steep hills. If you're into something a bit more quiet this is a perfect place for wildlife viewing. This area boasts deer, jack rabbit, snakes, wild horses, cows and of course the occasional mountain lion! The Hills is a totally off the grid and completely undeveloped 10 acre parcel of land. Think boondocking! The road however, is pretty rough getting there. We STRONGLY recommend 4 wheel drive for your vehicles to be able to easily traverse the dirt and rocky roads.Google Maps has been giving bad directions as of late that will lead you to a dead end. Please refer to these directions in order to save yourself the hassle: 1. From Mescal Rd turn left on Salcido Ranch Road. 2. The road will curve and become Desert Sanctuary Rd, follow it until you reach Claras Way. Turn left. 3. Follow Claras Way as it curves, following the signs for Rancho Maria Vineyards. 4. Claras Way will eventually bump into Bell Rd at which point you will take a right. 5. Follow Bell Road until you come to a tire Bank on your right hand side. There will be one final sign for Rancho Maria Vineyard straight ahead. Take a left at the tire Bank to continue on Bell Rd. 6. The road becomes pretty rocky and you will want to veer to the right to avoid dips and holes. You will follow this road up as it bends left and again back to the right. Once you pass a large electrical pole you have entered The Hills. If you pass a fence with a small red camper affixed to the post you have left our property and are now in a natural gas line area. Don't do that!

Getting here was a bit of a challenge due to google maps misleading us. We started off on the wrong foot and had to backtrack. Follow the provided instructions and you’ll be able to find it no problem. Recommend downloading an offline map for the inevitable loss of cell service.
The last few miles of road are gnarly, steep, rutted dirt and rocks. My Jeep Patriot handled it just fine. I’d recommend coming in during the daytime
The views were pretty awesome and we caught a gorgeous sunrise. The cows also paid us a visit.
Gorgeous views, very hard to find!
Gorgeous views, but absurdly difficult to find! I would absolutely recommend this hipcamp, but STRONGLY encourage people to get there before dark, and bring a high-clearance vehicle with low-range 4x4. The valley view, privacy, and stars are ASTOUNDING. Unfortunately, I arrived after dark and it took me over an hour to find the spot. Do not use the actual address, you need the turn-by-turn (at least a dozen) directions from the owner. The last mile is very rough, would not recommend for cars / small SUVs unless you're experienced/cautious off-road driver.
