We are really excited to report that our long awaited trailhead is much closer to becoming a reality. The Fountain Hills Town Council approved the final design for the trailhead at its February 16th meeting. Bids for the project are due for award in June. It is hoped the project will be completed by the end of 2017 or at the latest the first quarter of 2018. The trailhead will be located at the end of Eagle Ridge Drive at the head of Adero Canyon. It will provide access to scenic overlooks, preserve trails and for hikers and cyclists alternative routes to access trails in the McDowell Mountain Regional Park and the McDowell Sonoran Preserve.

Thanks to our stewards, trailblazers, other volunteers, supporters and hikers for making this another great season for the Sonoran Conservancy of Fountain Hills. Our trailblazers continue their work on developing and maintaining our preserve trails every Saturday morning. Our stewards and hike leaders have made our guided hikes a great success. And, of course, our supporters help make all our activities possible.

So come on out and work and play with us. And, for an easy way to support us, go to https://smile.amazon.com and designate the Sonoran Conservancy of Fountain Hills as your designated charity.
