The great outdoors just minutes away in Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve

If you are visiting Scottsdale, or it has been a while since you have been up to the McDowell Mountain Recreation Park, make sure to walk the Gateway Trail (off Thompson Peak Parkway) at Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve. It is not a difficult walk/hike and you will get to experience the Sonoran Desert at its best. You can also bike and bring your dog (on a leash). There is an information center with clean bathrooms too.
