The lower Ramsey Canyon Trail is on property managed by the Nature Conservancy and can be accessed by paying a day use fee through the visitor center. Please note the property does have hours of operations and specific days it is closed, so you should check the Nature Conservancy's page for info. The lower loop trail is an easy low gradient hike that follows a creek surrounded by nice forest including some huge sycamores. The trail that heads south upslope off of the loop is a much more strenuous series of switchbacks that climbs the steep hillside, and I would only consider the lower loop as easy.

We went to the waterfall, just past the overlook, and back a little under 3 hours. A very doable hike. Many trail connections to longer trails. Would highly recommend.

I've been up to the parking area of Ramsey many times before to see the hummingbirds. Incredible amount of birds here. I've hiked the trail as well, and it's one of a few canyons in southern AZ that has Maple trees in it. So in the fall, it is worth a short hike to see the reds. The trail goes on to connect to many others on the mountain

Very beautiful in December, the leaves changing where breathtaking! We went all the way to the falls which is NOT easy but moderate!
