Aguila, Arizona is on the eastern edge of the Arizona Outback - located on Hwy 60 approximately 20 miles west of Wickenburg, in Maricopa County. Aguila lies in a beautiful fertile valley just north of the Harquahala Mountain Range and boast of growing the world's finest Cantaloupes!
Aguila's name is tied to Eagle Eye Mountain which lies in the Harquahala Mountain Range.
"The Harquahala Mountains are the highest mountain range in southwestern Arizona, USA and are located southwest of the towns of Aguila and Wenden. The name originated from a local Native American people "Aha qua hala" which meant "water there is high up". Eagle Eye Mountain has a natural opening or bridge through it appearing as an eye high up, and is the namesake for the peaks and Aguila (Spanish for eagle)".
Eagle Eye Road heading south out of Aguila from Hwy 60 offers beautiful wilderness areas for jeep rides, hiking trails, rockhounding and scenic views.
