More than 170 species of birds and 400 species of plants make their home in Ramsey Canyon Preserve and the surrounding national forest. Southwestern specialties such as painted redstarts and magnificent hummingbirds may be seen by visitors. The redstarts and hummingbirds share the canyon with many other animals, including Chiricahua leopard frogs, black bears, and dozens of species of butterflies. Entrance fees are $8 per person. Conservancy members and Cochise County residents, $5 per person. Children under 13, free. The tour takes about 2 hours.
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.
Please note: Parking at the preserve is limited and if full, visitors may be temporarily turned away. There is no parking along the road and no reservations are taken.
