Hiking is a great way to work off stress from a hectic work week.

There are great trails for mountain biking in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve!

Recreation

Visiting the Preserve is one of the best things to do in Scottsdale! Open to non-motorized recreation, this includes hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, rock climbing and trail running. Many visitors also enjoy painting, photography, reflection, and birding in the Preserve.
