Madera Canyon Hiking Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Nature Conservancy’s Davis Mountains Preserve is a spectacular piece of the Texas Trans- Pecos, encompassing one of the state’s few “sky islands” where wilderness has remained predominantly uncompromised by human activity.

The Madera Canyon Preserve, a 4000-acre parcel of a total 32,000 acres under the Conservancy’s Davis Mountains protection, was purchased from the Eppenauer family, a conservation-minded west Texas ranching dynasty who had owned the land for seventy years. One of the most beautiful canyons in the Texas high sierras, Madera Canyon is more than 900 feet deep in some places and heady with springs, volcanic dikes, endangered species, and, remarkably, elk."
