Ramsey Canyon has the distinction of being the countries first National Natural Landmark. Because of its unique natural environment numerous animals and birds call it home year round or during their migration. It is the hummingbird capital of the nation hosting such species as the Annas, Berryline, Black Chinned, Blue Throated Mountain Gem, Broad-billed, Broad-tailed, Calliope, Costa's, Rivoli, Rufous, Violet Crowned and White Eared. As of June 17th 2022, we have 6 species of hummingbirds visiting us. With over 170 different species of birds that come through the area, it is a true Birders Paradise! We have over 50 bird and hummingbird feeders throughout the property to increase your viewing opportunities and a Bird Garden with over 20 feeders, a water fountain and plenty of shaded seating to relax and enjoy.

Coues whitetail deer, and Goulds turkeys are on the property everyday, and you may also see coatimundis, foxes, ring tailed cats, racoons, squirrels, skunks and javelina. There are a pair of Elf Owls located in the Sycamore trees next to the Cowboy Cabin. At dusk they become active and provide opportunities for viewing and picture taking. We have also been very fortunate to have a family of Whiskered Screech Owls nest in a Sycamore tree near the well house on the property. The young have not fledged yet but it looks like it will be soon.
The property consists of 8 acres, sits at approximately 5400' in elevation and is part of the larger Huachuca Mountains. It is part of the "sky islands" which is a unique ecosystem with an incredible amount of biodiversity. The change in elevation from the valley creates an amazing environment most don't expect to find in "the desert". There are 4 different trails that total a little over a mile on site. The trails meander through the property and along spring fed Ramsey Canyon Creek offering views of the canyon cliffs, Sierra Vista and Dragoon Mountains. We are only a third of a mile from the Ramsey Canyon Preserve which also offers many hiking trails and birding opportunities. The canyon is heavily treed with a large variety of Pines, Junipers, Oaks, Sycamores, Maples, and Cottonwoods which help keep temperatures about 15-20* cooler than Phoenix and 10-15* cooler than Tucson in the summer making it a perfect getaway to beat the summer heat or for a change of weather during any season!
