Majestic rock cliffs frame a winding river flowing freely through the Western Arizona landscape. The river course shifts organically within the landscape, so you’ll never see it look quite the same twice.
The refuge is located in a transition zone between the Mojave and Sonoran desert, so it boasts a truly unique ecosystem that’s bursting with wildlife. From birds to reptiles, butterflies to amphibians, there’s sure to be something to catch your eye and convince you to stay just a little longer.
The scenery includes native cottonwood and willow forests, Saguaro cactus, and even a cattail stand. Finding all these things in one place is rare, so make sure to try at least one of the two foot trails. You can discover the area at your own pace and absorb each unforgettable sight.
