Visit the largest urban park in North America.

Arizona's South Mountain Park and Preserve spans 16,000 acres. It includes an Environmental Education Center and over 58 miles of trails ideal for hiking and mountain biking. The South Mountain Environmental Education Center is a great place to learn about local plants, animals, the natural history, and the conservation needs of the Sonora Desert. It offers interpretive exhibits and activity stations for hands-on education. There are also covered areas with grills where guests can enjoy a picnic outside.

Many visitors also enjoy the scenic Summit Road, a 5.5-mile byway beginning at the park entrance. The Summit Road takes drivers to the top of the mountain to enjoy the fantastic, unobstructed panoramic view of the valley. You can also opt for a guided horseback tour from Ponderosa Stables to explore the trails and get up close to the ancient petroglyphs in the park. If you're ready for adventure, bring your mountain bike, horse, or just your hiking boots and plenty of water to the South Mountain Park and Preserve.
