McDowell Sonoran Preserve Tours

McDowell Sonoran Preserve
If there’s a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, McDowell Sonoran Preserve just might be it. With more than 30,000 acres, including the McDowell Mountains, visitors can hike it, bike it or even climb it. 

With more than 120 miles of trails, picking which way to go can be tough, so ask the experts. Most mornings McDowell Sonoran Conservancy Pathfinders are on duty at the Brown's Ranch Trailhead, Gateway Trailhead, Lost Dog Wash Trailhead, Sunrise Trailhead and Tom’s Thumb Trailhead.  Pathfinders have all sorts of information and suggestions to insure a fun, safe day on the trails.

Fit families will enjoy the way the Family Passport keeps everyone moving together. Scavenger hunts for animal tracks, rocks and other nature provided attractions can provide inspiration for hours of exploring. When you visit five Preserve trailheads (Gateway, Lost Dog, Sunrise, Tom’s Thumb and Brown’s Ranch) and get your passport stamped you’ll win a Preserve bandana.

Practical Info

Trailhead gates are open from sunrise to sunset, and there is no charge for parking or access.
Address: 18333 North Thompson Peak Parkway, Scottsdale, Arizona 85255, USA

Seeing the Sonoran desert on two wheels can be memorable. We have lots of options for any level of rider. If you have not been on a bike for a while don't worry we can help you rediscover that talent. If you are a road cyclist and or an intermediate and experienced mountain biker we have you covered too. We have a fleet of hard tail and full suspension mountain bikes for an enjoyable ride. Our guides have many years and levels of experience on the mountain bike to show you a safe, fun and fantastic time. All bike tours include use of a Marin Performance Hardtail Mountain Bike, helmet, gloves, snacks, bottles of water, sunscreen and a professional, medically trained guide. Pedal preference? No worries. And we love riders of all ages, so if the kids have joined you on your getaway to the Valley of the Sun, bring them along! As long as they can ride a bike, of course! Meet your guide at Brown's Ranch Trailhead, 30301 N. Alma School Parkway, McDowell Sonoran Preserve, Scottsdale.
