Proctor Nature area trail is located in Madera Canyon. It is a 3.0 mile round trip (out and back) with an elevation gain of 489 and a trail rating of moderate. Although rated as moderate it is not that bad of a hike.
This is a great birding area! Lots to see and runs along Madera Creek. Lots of trees.
The trail surface starts out as old asphalt, then hard packed earth, asphalt again and finally hard packed earth again. Be sure to stop Rita Lodge for a cup of coffee and your favorite snack, while watching the birds feed
