The weather is cooling so it’s an GREAT time to hit the trails. Scottsdale has some beautiful trailheads you might want to go and enjoy our beautiful desert. Many of them are found at Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve that offers a beautiful backdrop of mountains and desert brush. The preserve offers five major trail-heads with over 180 miles of trails.

Sunrise Trail East – One of the more difficult hikes on the preserve, the 4 mile hike features steep sections and over an 1,100 foot elevation change. The trail goes right to the top for an amazing view of the McDowell Mountains in all directions along with gorgeous granite formations. 12101 N. 145th Way, Scottsdale, AZ 85259 www.mcdowellsonoran.org/hike
