Fodor's Review

The 1,253-acre preserve, which includes a 3½-acre park and 250 acres of aquatic habitat, is on the Colorado Indian Tribes Reservation and is a top spot in the area for bird-watching and hiking. Some 350 species of migratory and native birds live around the region or visit on their annual migrations. The best bird-watching is along the shoreline of the backwater area branching off the Colorado River. The 4½-mile hiking trail has exercise stations along the way, and a trail extension will lead you to the tribal historical museum and gift shop. From AZ 95 in Parker, which is at the southern end of Lake Havasu, head west on Mohave Road for about 2 miles. When you reach the "Parker Indian Rodeo Association" sign, continue ½ mile farther and turn left at the "Tribal Preserve" sign at Rodeo Road.
