The Sonoran Desert is probably the most diverse areas on earth. With more than 100 species of lizards, mammals, birds, and two thousand plants creating a home in the desert, you will never know what you will face out here!
Scottsdale is very pleased to call over thirty thousands acres of this landscape our “backyard”. Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve has six paths, over a hundred miles of trails to find out and discover and unfurls across the eastern edge of the town. Below are a few various ways to discover the preserve:
Hiking: Each one of the six trailheads offers guests an exclusive Preserve experience. Brown’s Ranch Trailhead and also the new Fraesfield Trailhead are the upper entry points to the Preserve. Each offer excellent views of Pinnacle Peak and enormous boulder shapes. Entry and Tom’s Thumb trailheads send you to winding paths at the center point of the preserve. Tom’s Thumb is probably the most tough trails in Scottsdale. Finally, Lost Dog Wash and Sunrise Trailhead can be found at the southern area of the preserve and gives perfect views of the valley.
From the official development in 1951 with a 2000 people, the city of Scottsdale has exploded to a 230 thousand now. Now it is one of the state’s largest city.
