Did you know the McDowell Sonoran Preserve is owned by the City of Scottsdale but cared for by over 500 stewards? Not only do we care for the Preserve, we have a blast enjoying the passive recreation that it provides.
We offer hike, mountain bike and equestrian tours lead by experienced, knowledgeable stewards. We would love for you to join us while we discover the Scottsdale's McDowell Sonoran Preserve, the largest urban preserve in the United States at over 30,000 acres and 133 miles of trails.
