New River Nature Reserve Maps

* All maps property of Google.

The New River Nature Reserve is located 35 miles north of Phoenix.  To get to the Reserve, take the 1-17 north of Phoenix.  A good indication of getting close to the Reserve is marked when you pass Anthem, which is 7 or 8 miles south of New River.  Once in New River, take the New River Road exit, exit 232.  Then, turn right (east) for a short distance on New River Road.  Then make a left and head north on what is the frontage road and what eventually turns into Old Stage Road.  Stay on this road for 2.5 miles as you are heading north to the Reserve.  Once you pass the New River Elementary School, the road turns into a dirt road (well maintained).  Keep following this road.  Once you see a ranch called Willow Hill Ranch, you are getting very close to the Reserve.  Old Stage Road then comes to an intersecton point and parking area, where there are many mailboxes for the town as well as the intersection with Coyote Pass Road.  Park at the noticeable pull offs here and then walk north on Old Stage Road to access the Reserve and it's birding habitats.
