Popular Ramsey Canyon Preserve Closed Due to Flooding

Southeast Arizona Preserve Temporarily Closed

Phoenix, AZ | July 17, 2012

The Nature Conservancy in Arizona has temporarily closed the Ramsey Canyon Preserve because of flooding following a monsoon storm. Ramsey Canyon is nestled in the Huachuca Mountains next to the Coronado National Forest near Sierra Vista.   

Ramsey Canyon is known for its scenic beauty, high canyon walls and cool environment. Visitors from Arizona and around the world enjoy hiking, as well as bird and wildlife watching at the preserve. It’s also a popular spot for hummingbirds. 

Ramsey Canyon Preserve will re-open when the water subsides and the area is cleaned up.
