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.

Beautiful well maintained trails. Mountain brook. Hiking to the overlook is not for the faint of heart, but worth the view. Disappointing that you have to pay to hike this trail.

I had the great honor of performing a wedding ceremony there on June 27, 2015. What a beautiful place this is. I had never been there and I was speechless at the quiet and beauty of this little secret right in our own backyard. We will definitely be going back for more exploring in the near future. If you are... More

We always enjoy Ramsey Canyon! Can't wait to go again. The beautiful trees are awesome in the autumn too.

Dolen Ellis regularly performs at this venue. It is a wonderful intimate setting to enjoy folklore and song. It is a unique experience.

We recently visited here with some friends who live locally. We were amazed at the beauty of the area and the trail (we naively expected AZ to be all desert!). The trail is very well maintained and there are lots of benches/chairs along the trail to rest or to stop and take some pictures. We were hiking with young children,... More

A very nice location for an easy hike along the creek. Interesting history with a detail map to describe the interesting sites along the way. Helpful staff. Nice bookstore.

We started out by getting a good overview of the preserve in the visitor center by a volunteer. Then we were onto the trail and saw numerous birds, butterflies, dragonflies and deer. Don't leave out walking the side loops. We continued to the Hamburg Trail and the overlook which was a challenging climb for us (I consider myself to be... More
