Love this place! There is a cute shop (with restrooms) at the base and then there are some great hiking trails. Some of the trails are quite demanding, but the are is very beautiful and the views are lovely. There is also a fee to enter.

We have take every out of town guest here and they've always enjoyed it. We've seen wild turkeys, lots of deer and even a bear from afar. It can be an easy to moderate hike and good for kids. Pretty all year long.

We went on a rainy day and had a very nice hike along the creek. Saw many Coues whitetail deer and lots of birds. Very nice, easy hike.

This is a wonderful place to visit if you want to see wildlife, especially birds. There are Hummingbirds everywhere off the back porch. Stop at the gift shop, talk to the ladies there to get the information of the day, pay $5 and you're all set. There is a short film you can also watch. The Nature Conservancy has done... More

The lower path is a very easy walk and one can push a wheelchair in the packed dirt. If you want hike higher to the look out point it does get steeper and... More

Great birding from low elevation to high. Well maintained trails and adequate parking. Must pay a fee to enter and hours and days of operation are restricted. One of the most accessible canyons near Sierra Vista. A just see.

One of the true gems of Cochise County. A beautiful and peaceful sanctuary for nature lovers. Birders will rejoice with the wide number of species to be seen here year round.

Today we saw a pair of Cooper's Hawks preparing a meat dinner for themselves and possibly their chicks in the nest, couldn't see the chicks Lots of hummingbirds,a plumbous vireo, a mother deer with twins in tow, and acorn woodpeckers. This place is always a great place to stop.

We wanted to take a 9 AM tour but the parking lot only holds so many cars and cars parked on the nearby street will be towed. So get there an hour before your tour starts so you can park in the lot. If you are waiting for a guided tour, you can walk the trails or visit the gift... More
