Beezley Hills Preserve Professional Review and Guide

"The Beezley Hills Preserve is an area of 4788 acres north of Quincy that is protected by The Nature Conservancy, which started buying up the land in 1998. From this high vantage point, hikers can peer out at the expanse of eastern Washington.

The views to the south sweep in the broad lands of the middle Columbia Basin and the greater Quincy area, while to the east you can see all the way to Moses Lake on clear days. The preserve protects a diversity of wildlife and a huge array of wild plants. Indeed, this area is home to one of the largest populations of hedgehog cactus we’ve ever seen—thousands of the squat little spiny plants are tucked into the sandy loam of the preserve. Watch your step, and keep the kids close at hand if you don’t want to be picking spines out of ankles."

"Pass through a stile and follow an old jeep track through wide-open country. A fainter set of tracks diverge left—it meets back up with the main track after 0.25 mile. Soak up the sun and breezes and admire the farmed plains to the south, Moses Lake to the east, and lofty Mission Ridge to the west. In spring the way is muddy, with fresh imprints from passing critters. By later in the summer the ground is hard and cracked."
