This was a great ten mile mountain bike trail. Challenging climb because I am not used to the approximately 6000 foot elevation. The run down was very fun and long. There were two very challenging jumps on the way down. The other ditches, jumps and bumps, etc. were not so scary. This trail is not for beginners. I am a... More

Don't like people who let their pets run around uncontrolled! See many animals and birds by the two pond at the bottom and up on the trail by the stream in the summer the rains fill the waterfalls beautifully. Do watch out for Mountain Lions and Bears...

Spent about 3 hours hiking this in mid march. Great vistas, enough elevation to get me sweating but not terribly difficult.

We hiked in for about an hour or so and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. The canyon was not very crowded, only 1-3 other small groups. The old farmstead at the trail head is a nice place to explore before or after your hike

This is a wonderful trail with a small stream running through it for most of the year that will not leave the hiker wanting at the end...

For experienced hikers, this 7 1/2 to 8 mile round trip from Ramsey Canyon Preserve or the trailhead on Ramsey Canyon Road is a treat to the senses. Parts are rocky but the trail is well marked. Wildlife abounds but most likely will be watching you!

Be aware that Brown Canyon is a high desert hike. It's dry and can be extremely hot. The trail begins from a parking area about 1.1 miles up Ramsey Canyon Road (you're heading West). The parking area is to the right through a gap in the fence. Head generally North following the road/trail and drop down a relatively steep hill... More

My favorite hike in the Huachuca Mountains! While the trail is not very developed, it is easy to follow and is a beautiful look at the unique landscape that make s up these Arizona Mountain "Islands". Lots of wildlife is common, to include the occassional black bear! It does include a fair amount of vertical, so it is not for... More

This is mostly a plain desert hike. You get a view of the town and the blimp. It can be extremely beautiful during certain times of the year. It's great for night walks, too. I like looking out at all the lights in the town. There is a nice dirt road to walk on and if you continue over the... More

This is a nice walk that takes you up to a point where you can see for miles around, there's a grave there, it's a great view of the aerostat, and then you start to walk into the canyon down a long steep trail. This trail eventually forks into two trails: one way takes you further up into the mountain... More
