A little hard to find, well staffed preserve with short easy shaded walking paths around a pond and near a little water in the river bed, lots of birds, and nice visitor center. Nothing spectacular, but pleasant. There is another stretch of the Hassayampa River...More

Enjoyed walking the trails and identifying the various birds that were in the area. Shady areas where you can sit and enjoy yourself.

We drove into the Perserve, but all the parking spots were taken, and the next parking lot was like 2 blocks away, so we just drove back out. I heard the museum is supposed to be good, but it is a lot of hiking if...More

In front of the building you walk in to purchase tickets are hummingbird feeders that are just a hoot to watch and a photographers dream to catch. They have a board where they record when and what animal was seen. About three trails. All an...More
