This is a great destination for some nature photography without having to hike into the mountains. A trail map is available at the entrance. The trails are laid out nice and easy to follow. There are very nice viewing & seating points placed strategically around the small lake. If you are into bird or other nature photography, you can stake... More

We visited in winter after a fairly heavy rain -- the preserve was gorgeous with lots of water in the river and the trails were covered with soft leaves. We saw a fox and many beautiful birds. The bridge was gone so we couldn't go to the lookout, but we did all the other trails and they were excellent. It... More

This old ranch house, lake and walking paths is great for families (bring your lunch) and bird watchers. Best to see it when the river has water. $5 is a reasonable fee.

There are several walk. We did two of them. Not too long and beautiful as they wind along the river. We were utterly alone with nature. And the main desk person was enormously helpful. Must say this: Being city dwellers, it took us awhile to determine that the large piles of poop near the trail were herbivore (cow), not carnivore... More

An excellent place to take a short hike, and you love bird watching, this is the place to go. It is on the migratory path of many birds.

I have been driving by this place for years and have never bothered to stop...what a mistake on my part. My wife and I walked around for several hours just taking in the surroundings. The Hassayampa river was not much of a river today, but evidence suggests it can get rather large. Take a camera, don't miss the photo ops.... More

I went later in the afternoon so beware they close early in the dessert foe obvious reasons. I think as early as 11am.
