Our Madera Canyon Trail is separate from The Davis Mountains Preserve and is OPEN to the public all year long, from sunrise to sunset, regardless of the closure of the Davis Mountains Preserve.
The Nature Conservancy's (TNC) Davis Mountains Preserve—home to Mount Livermore and Baldy Peak—is closed to the public for research and conservation-related management activities throughout the majority of the year. However, the preserve opens for camping, hiking, biking, equestrian, picnics, photography, birding and other outdoor activities on select weekends throughout the year.
As of 2023, A RESERVATION IS NO LONGER REQUIRED to attend Open Events on the preserve, with the exception of occasional special events. Please feel free to visit us during one of our Open Events, listed below!
