Location: 20 miles south of Tucson in the Santa Rita Mountains
Setting: Mountainous
Surface: Paved and Maintained Dirt or Gravel
Vehicle: Passenger Car
Length: 22 miles oneway
(from I-19 to Hwy 83)
Time to Allow: 1 hour
Season: Drivable year round
To get there:

Take Interstate 19 south from Tucson to the Continental Road (Exit 63). Drive east one mile to Forest Service Road 62 (signs here point to Madera Canyon).
Follow FSR 62 past the Madera Canyon FSR 70 cutoff. Here the road turns to dirt and bears left. The route ends at Hwy 83, a few miles north of Sonoita.

The first 8 miles on the Madera Canyon Road are paved. The remainder is dirt, rocky and narrow in places. This route is suitable for passenger cars if driven carefully.

 
 Box Canyon Road Scenic Drive is a nice drive that will add to your appreciation of the Santa Rita Mountains. Box Canyon Road takes you into an area of the mountain range where open grasslands predominate and where broad views stretch across the immense basins and isolated mountain ranges that make up the Coronado National Forest.

The mountains here are lower than those that form the core of the mountain range and are covered with waving expanses of grass rather than stately forrests. 

Look for a rocky seep covers sheer cliff with algae and colorful wildflowers along the way. The road reaches the top of its climb in an area of broad pastures and wood corrals where good views stretch to the east of seas of grass surrounding sky island mountain ranges such as the Mustangs, the Whetstones, and the Huachucas. From this point, the road meanders down to its junction with State Highway 83, a few miles north of the ranching community of Sonoita.
