Beautiful and serene and awesome birds! We had a wonderful guided tour. The guide was top notch. You must see this beautiful preserve. Do not go to Wickenburg without stopping here first. We loved it.

I volunteer here as well as coming here to go for little hikes and for birdwatching. Hassayampa means upside down so Hassayampa River is an upside down river. It flows underground most of the time, but at the preserve it flows above ground. There is a lot of history here as well. There is a nice flower garden you can... More

Absolutely beautiful green after all of the rain. Interesting to see the path the river had taken. We enjoyed speaking with the historian. Lots of hands--on artifacts the kids will enjoy.

We enjoyed the friendly staff, the museum exhibits, and the trails. What a beautiful place for old coots to relax and enjoy. I was especially impressed to learn that the Hassayampa River Preserve has a graduate of the prestigious Naubuc School as a sitting member of their staff. It was a pleasure to chat with her.

Main house (entry) is a well done museum of what the property used to be and what you can expect to see on the trails. Entrance fee is very reasonable. The Preserve is quiet and offers a variety of flora and fauna. Some trails, sand, are more difficult to navigate for someone with a walking disability. People of all ages... More

We visited in January 2017 during what turned out to be a particularly cold and wet winter. We didn't see much wildlife but that may have been due to the time of day. We walked several of the trails including a strenuous one up the hill. We thought it might be too difficult because we hadn't brought our hiking poles.... More

Lots of good trails here. Over two days I did parts of 5 of them. Would like to go back in Spring when things are blooming.

We love visiting the Hassayampa River Preserve. It is such a different and wonderful place to visit. We take our out-of-town visitors here and everyone really enjoys themselves.

A beautiful spot, lots of good trails all around the property, but one of the remarkable things about this place is how well they look after the local hummingbirds. At the entrance to the office, there are 4 or 5 feeders, and hummingbirds throng around them, then scoot off to neighboring trees to let other birds feed. To be honest,... More

This is worth a visit to the area to see if you are up for a long hike or just a short walk around the preserve. In the midst of the dry desert, there is always some water running through the preserve, so it gives you a sense of being much further away from the desert. It has nice shady... More
