Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve offers an array of fabulous desert trails and award-winning facilities. The Preserve is a uniquely geological ecosystem and home to stunning geography, lush cacti forests and diverse wildlife. 

We look forward to helping you explore and learn more about the Sonoran Desert. 

Our stewards (who are all volunteers) are experts in desert plants, animals and lore. We’ll go slow and stop and admire what we see; questions are encouraged. Starting times can be arranged to suit your schedule and may vary based on temperature.

Bookings require a minimum of eight hikers. For more information email or phone 480-998-7971, Ext 101
