Follow a trickle of a stream as you head uphill viewing old homesteads, deer and wild turkey thru the sweet smelling woods. The preserve places numerous feeders attracting many hummingbirds.

The preserve, operated by the Nature Conservancy, has a terrific trail roughly 1 mile long. It's still a good workout because it's very steep. At the top of the trail, there's a great view of a nice valley. If you go a little further up, say about 30 yards, off to the left of the trail is a small spring.... More

Nice tree cover so it doesn't get that hot. The people you meet are always friendly. We have always seen deer on every hike we have gone on.

The hike was fairly steep but not necessarily hard. The views were gorgeous. There preserve connects to a national forest so the trails are endless. It was a lovely, easy to get to hike while spending a couple weeks in Sierra Vista.

The Ramsey Canyon preserve is one of my favorite spots in the Huachucas. It has nice trails, and the lower areas are particularly accessible to folks of all fitness levels. This area is very popular with birders, and I have also spotted turkeys, deer, coatimundi, and javelina on my visits here. There is a stream running through the preserve land... More

This is a well marked trail with a visitors center owned and run by the Nature Conservancy. Admission is $6 for non members and $3 for members. They give a good description of the trail and in addition to wildlife sighting, birding, and views there are several old cabins to see that are still standing. The trail is a bit... More

I highly recommend a visit to the Ramsey Canyon Preserve - for anyone. Guests start at a nice visitor center and proceed on a walk up the canyon along a small creek. No visit to the Sierra Vista - Bisbee area is complete without taking the walk up Ramsey Canyon. The creek runs year round and supports a tremendous number... More

Quiet peaceful place. Lovely for family and kids to enjoy the wildlife and outdoors. Even in hot weather this is a beautiful and cool oasis for humans and wildlife.
