The Davis Mountains Preserve is located approximately 25 miles northwest of Ft. Davis on Hwy. 118 (about 10 miles past McDonald Observatory & about ¼ mile past the Lawrence E. Wood Picnic Area).
Guests will be required to sign in and out at the McIvor Conservation Center.
• Only high clearance vehicles will be allowed past the McIvor Conservation Center.
• Only camp stoves are allowed, and open camp fires are prohibited. (Jeff Davis County continues to be subject to a burn ban.)
• Restrooms are available at the McIvor Conservation Center.
• Guests should bring their own food and drinks and plan to take their trash home with them.
• Hikers should bring their own binoculars, cameras, sunscreen, hats and plenty of water to drink.
• Firearms, stereos and TVs are not permitted on the preserve.
• For safety reasons, children must be supervised by their parents or other designated adults.
• No pets of any kind are permitted on the preserve.
Interested parties are reminded that the Madera Canyon Trail, also located in the Davis Mountains Preserve, adjacent to the Lawrence E. Wood Picnic Area, is open to the public year-round from dawn until dusk.
