This group is for folks who love the views, wildlife, wildflowers, nature walks, conservation projects and/or just hiking on the Modini Mayacamas Preserves. These are private Nature Preserves owned and managed by Audubon Canyon Ranch (ACR). Hiking is with ACR’s guided programs or by permit ONLY, but you are welcome any time to enjoy birding and views from the pullouts along Pine Flat Road, which climbs a steep ridge thru the length of the Preserve.

Come drive the road, but please drive slowly and carefully - this is a rough, narrow, windy, one-lane country road with occasional blind curves. The road is also very POPULAR WITH BICYCLISTS (and occasional hikers too) - so please: EXTRA CAUTION.

We look forward to exploring these wild lands with you through the seasons and years, and we hope you’ll join our corps of local volunteers to help us protect the habitats and wild creatures that call this region home. For timely notification of upcoming hikes, access orientation / permitting sessions, and other activities at the Mayacamas Preserves, join the Meetup or e-mail the Preserve's Resource Ecologist - <a>david.self@egret.org</a> – and ask to be added to our monthly e-mail list. Note that there are no facilities, no restrooms, no restaurants, no drinking water, so come prepared, and remember that the property is also steep and wild.
