We were lucky that it was only in the 80s the day we chose to hike through the preserve. Still very hot in the sunny stretches, overall a good percentage of the trails are shaded. Most of the trails are flat but can be sandy...More

I enjoyed going, but the day I was there it was 96 degrees. I simply did not have the energy to walk all the trails. Both the river and the lake were a bit of a disappointment, but I admit, it might have been better...More

Easy, well managed trails. A great experience with several choices of trails, a couple round the lake. Recommended.

Great place for easy trails and "Target rich" environment for birding. Can get hot so go early especially between mid April and October. I suggest weekdays, looks like it gets busy on weekends.

Since we were there last, this Preserve has joined the Maricopa County Park system. There have been a lot of nice upgrades to the trails which make this park even more enjoyable than it has been in the past.

This is a cool place for easy hiking in the Wickenburg area. A lot of different things to see which may seem very unlikely in the desert. Great place for those who don’t like to hike seriously, and can be enjoyable to the real joker...More

Peaceful; easy to walk trails. Worth the drive and the admission price. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We took a gamble and took a leisurely walk through the River Preserve. Great and easy walk. Parking lot is being redone, so you'll have to park a bit farther.
