Unique to Desert Mountain is the private hiking and Equestrian trail system.
The hiking trails consist of more than fifteen miles of trail segments that offer a wide range of hiking experiences with varying degrees of difficulty, leading to the Continental Mountain’s eastern slope and its dramatic Sonoran desert panoramas. Pass through Saguaro cactus forests, a colorful riparian basin and up to a scenic point, with views stretching all the way to Tucson’s Catalina Mountains.
Climb to a 4,100-foot elevation to view local landmarks such as Skull Mesa, New River Mesa, Elephant Butte – and an incredible 90 miles west, all the way to Harquahala Peak beyond the town of Wickenburg.
Be sure to watch out for the slow-moving, indigenous Desert Tortoise along the way.
Desert Mountain recently received the ‘American Trails Developer Award’ from the non-profit American Trails organization.
AND DID YOU KNOW….
…that the average size of a full-grown Saguaro cactus is approximately 30 feet tall and it has about five ‘arms’?
The Saguaro also provides shelter and sustenance for a wide variety of bird life.
According to the National Park Service, the tallest Saguaro ever discovered was 78 feet tall. That particular Saguaro was probably well over 200 years old!
