Madera Canyon Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful area for bird watching as it is a true bird sanctuary! The path is paved so easy access. Lots of parking. Vegetation is varied not very many cactus. Lots of big beautiful trees and running water. Saw a family of deer, jack rabbits, and heard all sorts of birds! A place to visit for sure. The Fall season would be beautiful!
It is a great place to hike and has amazing views
