Find a summer evening adventure by visiting the Campbell Ave bridge over the Rillito river. Thousands of Mexican Free-Tailed bats take flight at sunset, filling the sky. You can stand above and watch them take flight or go on the Loop path and listen to them under the bridge.

Tucson has bats under many bridges, but this one and the one at Pantano and Broadway bridge are marked with awesome bat art and informative signs. Great places to watch these amazing animals.

Know Before You Go

There is a public parking zone right at the bridge site, on the southeast intersection, sometimes there are docents/students there to share more information with people around, never handle bats, but watching is wonderful.
