Madera Canyon, Proctor Rd to Santa Rita Lodge with Scott Crabtree & Andrea Serrano

Registration fee: $35/member, $50/non-member*

Trip Difficulty: Moderate. Moderately difficult walk over a worn but rocky trail, covering 3-4 miles round trip with the turn-around at the Picnic grounds. Some areas require climbing over rocks or possibly crossing the stream on rocks. Bathrooms available at both ends of the trail. No drinking water available.

Join Scott Crabtree and Andrea Serrano for a birding hike through Madera Canyon! Starting at the Proctor Road parking area, we’ll hike up the Madera Canyon Trail, through the Madera Picnic Grounds, to the Santa Rita Lodge, where we will spend some time at the bird feeders. We’ll look for the typical Sky Island specialities, spring migrants, and early nesting species.

Bring your optics of choice, appropriate footwear, and food and water. Final trip plans will be emailed to participants. Madera Canyon has a daily use fee of $8 per car or you must have a valid Coronado National Forest Annual Pass or Interagency (America the Beautiful) Pass, including the Annual, Senior, Access, or Military Pass, displayed on the driver’s side of the vehicle dashboard. Limited to 8 people.
