Steep, Wild Country, No Facilities, No Pets Please dress for the weather and bring at least one quart of drinking water. You may also wish to bring a hat, an extra layer and a snack. There are no toilets, no water fountains, no restaurants, no trash collection...this is a primitive and wild place! Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the outing. For hikes you will want shoes that protect your toes and give you good traction on uneven ground, such as sneakers or hiking boots. Please leave your pets at home.

The Modini Mayacamas Preserves This private nature sanctuary, owned and managed by Audubon Canyon Ranch, has a range of different public access opportunities. Pine Flat Road, a public county road with pullouts, meanders through the preserve, allowing visitors to enjoy the views and birdwatching from roadside pullouts anytime without appointment. Please drive very cautiously, this is a one lane winding road with very limited sight lines. The sanctuary also hosts public guided hikes, which are posted on this website's calendar. For independent hiking, attend an orientation sessions, which are also posted here.
