Time To Head Outside

No better way to enjoy the Fall season than to go for a walk!

The cooler weather invites us all to take advantage of the outdoors. Unlike much of the country, Arizona's Fall and Winter are some of the most beautiful and temperate times to get outside for a walk or a run. Once you've enjoyed your Thanksgiving feast, grab the family and walk off your meal and take in the desert sights. Here are some beautiful trails to try out.

1. Queen Creek Wash - The trail spans 5.6 miles and begins on Power Road and ends at East Village Loop Rd. This trail winds its way past mature trees where you will spot plenty of rabbits, quails, and road runners to share the path with.

2. Sonoqui Wash Trail - This trail is 3.8 miles and goes past beautiful rural desert landscape. The trail is popular with bird lovers and over 20 different species have been spotted here.

3. Boyce Arboretum - Further afield but a short drive away is the Boyce Arboretum. A beautiful and renowned park which has a series of trails that include a children's garden, a rose garden, and plenty of history too.

4. Lost Dutchman State Park - Named after the fabled lost gold mine, this State Park is also an easy drive and offers multiple trails and stunning views of the desert. This park has countless photo opportunities and trails that range from flat and kid friendly trails to more challenging ones.
