  • Looking for easy hiking then do hike along the creek bed. If you are up to more strenuous hiking, then head up the mountain side. Try to meet with a docent and learn more about the history and geology...  more »
  • Awesome, great hike, they have tame deer that roam around the park....legs will feel like jello if you make it to the top of the mountain but it's worth every step to see the view...took me about 2 ho...  more »
  • Our trip was centred around birding. October was already quiet from the point of view of migrants but the canyon and the Nature Conservancy shop are great.

  • Terrific docent-led walk 9:00-11:00 Mon, Thurs, Sat March-November or by appointment. Open daily 8-5; (or 9-4 Nov - winter months).Gates close at 4 or 5, so you need to be back by then. Bookstore with books, maps, and clothing is staffed. Naturalists on site. The Nature Conservancy bought 300 acres in 1975, and has 1-3 staff on-site. Fee is $6 ($3 locals) per person, under 16 yo free. Most folks walk half-mile up and half-mile back on well maintained trail covered in wood chips. Trail next to year-round babbling Creek and in cool shade of Canyon. Three small house dating to 1902, 1911 and recent. This is a famous place to bird watchers (top 10 places in USA) for Elegant Trogon and USA-rarities more predominant in Mexico.
  • I had the pleasure of hiking the trails and meeting a few of the ladies who work at the shop. They even let me borrow a walking stick for my journey. When I would actually stop and take a look around, there was deer at every turn. They would just walk past like I was just another tree. The Hamburg Trail was difficult for a little bit but when I caught my breath, I was able to enjoy the ascent. The view from the lookout was nice. I can't wait to walk it again when the leaves have changed.
  • This reserve is one of the most beautiful places to take a hike and enjoy the outdoors. The paths are amazing, with tons of great sights to see. These are also a few tougher paths that go up the side of the mountain, and they're worth every step as the views from up high are spectacular.
  • Great place to hike and watch birds and wildlife. Easy shaded hike that gets a little more difficult the further you go. Water falls are gorgeous.
  • They have plenty of trails and sights to see, when it rains a lot the river is running hard and sounds amazing and is a beautiful.
