Phoenix Sonoran Preserve

The Phoenix Sonoran Preserve is not your typical city park. Comprising more than 9,600 acres, this desert gem and its 36+ miles of trail offers the sense of being completely away from it all!

Sunol Regional Wilderness

A short drive to east of Fremont brings you to the almost 7,000 acre Sunol Regional Wilderness, which offers amazing bird-watching opportunities, access to the Ohlone Wilderness Trail, amazing views of the Bay Area, and a fantastic backcountry experience less than an hour away from the sprawling East Bay metropolitan area.

Cerbat Foothills Recreation Area

Just outside of Kingman, the Cerbat Foothills Recreation Area offers more than 40 miles of multi-use trails on 11,300 acres.

Cave Creek Regional Park

What it lacks in acreage (and the creek for which it is named), Cave Creek Regional Park north of Phoenix more than makes up in recreational opportunities, from guided horseback rides to archery lessons, hiking to stargazing (telescope included)!

Cole Canyon Natural Park

By far the largest park in the City of Murrieta, the rustic 165-acre Cole Canyon Natural Park offers wide open space, access to Murrieta Creek, and trails with fantastic views of the Temecula Valley.

Sipsey Wilderness

The SIpsey on the Bankhead National Forest in northwest Alabama is a land of superlatives: it is the oldest, largest, and most popular of the state’s three designated wilderness areas. Also known as the ‘Land of 1,000 Waterfalls,’ this beautiful site is home to an incredible variety of flora & fauna, and offers an outstanding array of outdoor recreation opportunities.
