Visitors from all over the world come to see the more than 170 species of birds found in the preserve and surrounding national forest at Ramsey Canyon Preserve. Southwestern specialties such as painted redstarts and magnificent hummingbirds share the canyon with many other animals, including black bears, Chiricahua leopard frogs, and dozens of species of butterflies. The canyon is also home to more than 400 species of plants, from tiny mosses to towering firs.

For those hiking up the canyon trails, hikers must return to the parking lot by closing: 5 p.m. summer hours/4 p.m. winter hours. Gates are locked promptly upon closing.
