Welcome to the Flying V7 Ranch, Stay in the Longhorn Room in the Bunk House. This 165 acre working ranch is surrounded by thousands of acres of State and Federal Land. Bring your horse and enjoy miles of trails and dirt roads. This beautiful rugged country is also perfect for hiking, biking, jeeps and quads, in a historical area. The Flying V7 Ranch headquarters is nestled in the Dripping Springs Mountains where the Old Stage Coach Station was located. The Stagecoach from Tucson, Florence, and Globe stopped right here. The old rock Stagecoach building has been converted to a little church (see picture) and featured in Arizona Highways Magazine. Pearl Hart 'The Lady Bandit' was the first known female Stagecoach robber, robbing the Stagecoach in May 1899 in the Dripping Springs Mountains. She led a notorious life. You can find her name carved on a rock in the canyon.
