A nature experience

This is a great area for hiking, picnicking, walking, bird watching, and a great place to experience a full moon walk!

This is a regional park..not a federal park. It gives you the opportunity to get out in the brush along numerous trails you can take. While rattlers are not prevalent..you do need to remember you are not walking down the main street of your home city. A neat stop for few hours.

A nice, moderately challenging hike. Great views as you reach the Wind Cave. The wind cave itself is a little lackluster but it's a fun hike.

About 40 minutes southeast of Scottsdale is Usery Mountain Regional Park. There is a wide and flat trail called the Merkel Trail that is perfect for all ages The one mile loop offers plenty of gorgeous expansive views of the mountains and desert and the trail is thriving with succulents, trees and other plants of the Sonoran Desert.

Wind cave is a great hike. You can be as aggressive as you want to push yourself, or take your time to get to the top. The mountain bike trail is fairly flat, unless you want to do one of the Cat's Paw loops. The west end of the trail is in pretty rough shape after the last set of... More

Book a year in advance, you won't be sorry! The hiking and views and cacti are incredible. We spent the first couple nights in overflow parking ($12, right across from the check-in kiosk) and then got lucky enough to grab a camp spot ($30) with electricity and water hookups; there's a dump station somewhere here which we'll use on the...

We are active seventy-somethings. This was our second visit to hike toward the Cave of the Wind. There is a $6 entrance fee per vehicle per day. There are picnic areas and restrooms and lovely views of the city of Phoenix to the west and mountains north and east. Take water, perhaps a walking stick, sunscreen, hat and a camera.... More
