Created by former board members of the Presidio Museum, the Turquoise Trail is a 2 ½ mile loop through downtown Tucson that highlights structures and sites of historic interest and is marked by a turquoise stripe on the sidewalk. It begins at the Presidio Museum, located at the northeast corner of the original Presidio San Agustin del Tucson, founded in 1775.
