Trail notes: Walked to the Old Stone House. This abandoned stone house was built in the 1930s by Sherry Bowen who reportedly worked for the Arizona Daily Star.

They must have ridden horses back and forth to this place because it's miles from any type of developed road. The Bowen House was left empty when they moved back east. In 1983, the structure became part of the Tucson Mountain Park. What GLORIOUS views to wake up to every day!
