Recently, I had the opportunity to do some hiking up Brown Canyon. We started at the ranch, and the first time, I went half way. It was a little rough in a couple of spots, but overall, very nice. The second time, we went twice...More

Loved the trail. We parked at the top of the road and walked the distance on the dirt road towards the ranch. We took the trail and walked around before ending up at the ranch. Lots of wildlife - birds, butterflies galore, lizards, etc. the...More

I've been here solo and with birding buddies. This is a fine place to wander along the trail and look for birds not common in the Midwest. A good range of species can be found in any season. A bonus is the looks at the...More

This is a very scenic trail that would be good for most anyone. After a while it does come to an uphill portion but nothing too strenuous and even on those windy days it offers a nice break from the wind after the initial short...More

I hike the short version,from the Ranch to the water trough and back, 4.2 miles once a week. There are many other variations from this basic hike, to include Ramsay Canyon, Tinker Pond, and a loop to Ramsay Road. Shaded much of the way. Wildlife...More
