  • Other than a few typical bird species, we saw no wildlife. If you just want to walk on easy trails with a few birds overhead without cactus sticking to you, this is a nice place to go.  more »

  • The preserve is amazing. It like an oasis in the desert. There are public restrooms and great areas for picnicking and families. We were on a school outing and the staff and volunteers involved were awesome. 5 stars all the way around. My only complaint was that we didn't have more time to spend there.
  • A very user friendly facility with friendly staff and knowledgeable staff. The grounds are kept clean, well-maintained and natural as it should be. I took 2 guests who had never been there before and they were thrilled with their visit!
  • A fun hike. Great for the whole family. A very cool and refreshing break from the heat. Go after a good rain.
  • We stopped on a whim while doing a drive in the country. This preserve is an oasis in the desert. I appreciated that they had the plants labeled so I could learn more about the desert landscape. The restroom facilities were closed, so port o pottys were the only option.
  • This is a beautiful oasis in our desert country. The River hikes are easy but be advised that the trail to the lookout is as the sign says, trail is steep and has lots of loose rocks. It is also narrow in spots.
