A day loop in the bottomlands of Sonoita Creek. This loop trail follows an old railroad bed while traversing floodplain and riparian habitat that is well-known for its diverse birdlife. The preserve is home to the gray hawk and green kingfisher, among other rare species of birds. Although it is located on the outskirts of the town of Patagonia, this nature preserve has retained much of its wild character, and represents one of the few riparian ecosystems that has survived in the Arizona lowlands.
