Hittin' the Trails 4 You: Guided bird walks at Ramsey Canyon

Posted: Updated:

SIERRA VISTA - Ramsey Canyon Preserve offers guided walks through October on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 9 AM.

The walks wander up an easy, shady trail and cover the lively natural and cultural history of the canyon. Leaders focus on birds and share information about The Nature Conservancy work here and beyond. Tours last about 2 hours.

The best months for birding at the preserve are April through September. On average, temperatures at the preserve are 10-15 degrees cooler than those in Tucson.

The diverse wildlife and habitats of Ramsey Canyon may be viewed from the Hamburg Trail. This open-ended route parallels Ramsey Creek through the preserve before climbing 500 feet in a half-mile series of steep switchbacks. These lead to a scenic overlook in the Coronado National Forest one mile from the preserve headquarters. From the overlook, the trail continues upstream and enters the Miller Peak Wilderness Area where it joins other trails.
