The Nature Conservancy’s Davis Mountain Preserve has an open weekend scheduled for May 13-15. With the Rockhouse Fire still threatening the area it is likely the preserve will be closed that weekend. On May 4th the preserve will decided weather or not they will open.
Should conditions allow for an open event in mid-May, the open weekend scheduled for May 13th through 15th will be shortened to an open day on Saturday, May 14th only, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Vehicles will not be allowed past the McIvor Conservation Center. All entry past the headquarters area will be on foot, horseback, or bicycle. This change is necessitated by the continuing high fire danger conditions. We will have more information as that weekend approaches.

The Madera Canyon Trail, remains closed until further notice due to active fire and fire containment efforts in the area. (The Madera Canyon Trail is normally open to the public on a daily basis with trail head at the east end of the Lawrence E. Wood Picnic Area.)

I was at the Davis Mountain Preserve one year ago hiking to the summit of Mt. Livermore under much different conditions. Rain and fog threatened the whole hike. We ended up turning around 1/2 mile from the summit when lightning struck the radio towers on the summit.Click here to read more about that hike.
