A recent visit to this Nature Conservancy property produced decent, although not outstanding, birding. We had read a recent review from about three weeks earlier describing a fantastic variety and numbers of each species, but there were only limits on both accounts. Still, we had some decent sightings, and as can be the case with any birding outing, you get... More

We have friends that live in Surprise and on a recent visit they took us here. I was pleasantly surprised by how neat this was. The trails were manageable (we had an infant and 4 year old with us) and the trees and wildlife were neat to see. We took a picnic and ate it in the picnic area. Wasn't... More

What a great delight. The trails were mostly easy and we enjoyed seeing the birds and critters of the area. We did go to the top of the lookout and it was a bit of a challenge but doable for anyone with the interest. The helpers were great and full of information. It was a delightful way to spend a...

I visit the Hassayampa river preserve every year - never disappointed. The hikes around the preserve are not difficult, and tge one around Palm Lake is wheelchair accesible. Make the effort to climb up Lyke's Lookout - the views are extraordinary. Visit at different times of the year, as the preserve is so different depending on the time of the... More

I've wanted to visit this Nature Conservancy preserve since the 80s. I was not disappointed. The visitor center has lots of useful information plus helpful staff and volunteers. The trails are well marked and varied and the riparian zone and wildflowers were outstanding. This special place should be on every nature lover's list; and, you can also access the Hassyampa...

It was nice but it got a little boring. Needed more to see other than just walking on trails and seeing trees.

Then entire area from here to Wikiup to the north is a hiking treasure. Joshua trees and Savaro cactus are all around. This March everything is very green. Get there.

This is a good place to hike. We went early, and because of that, the rivers, and the trees, it wasn't too hot. Most of the trails are easy, though one is pretty steep. Even that one was manageable - though I did have to stop and rest several times - and the view at the top was incredible! They... More

Since we are members of Nature. Conservancy we felt we should stop and see how our money works!. It was a nice break from driving, very quiet and certainly not what you expect to find in the middle of the desert.. Well worth a stop and make sure you read the signs along the way.

Enjoyable walk in nature. Several trails were closed due to rains the day before. Didn't see too many birds or other critters.
