View from the Fountain Hills Sonoran Preserve:
January 2018: The conservancy is a non-profit all volunteer organization established to support and maintain 740 acres of open space along the eastern side of the McDowell Mountains. Its work is supported by the Town of Fountain Hills and monetary contributions from the public. It depends upon the dedicated volunteers who build and maintain our trails, lead and support exercise and educational walks and hikes to share the beautiful Sonoran Desert that surrounds Fountain Hills.

We are very excited to report that our long long awaited trailhead is now under construction. We are hopeful it will be completed before this time next year and available for public access. There are easy trails to walk or hike for those that want to enjoy the view of the town and surrounding mountains. Those looking for more challenge will have direct access to preserve trails and trails connecting to Scottsdale's McDowell Mountain Preserve and McDowell Mountain Regional Park. We shall keep you posted on construction progress and are looking forward to celebrating the trailhead's opening with you!

We thank you and appreciate your past support and interest in our organization. We hope you have had an opportunity to enjoy our local trails. Our hikes for this season can be found HERE.

March 2017. 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.
