BROWN'S RANCH TRAILHEAD NOW OPEN!
McDowell Sonoran Preserve
The long awaited Brown's Ranch Trailhead in north Scottsdale was opened for public use on Monday June 10, 2013. Fifty-five miles of new and rebuilt non-motorized trails are now signed and ready to explore----and many more are planned as work continues to expand the system to the north and west. I'll be heading out there this weekend, so stay tuned for photos and a trip report.
Grand opening ceremonies are planned for Saturday October 19, 2013.
HOURS: gates are open roughly sunrise to sunset daily---a specific time schedule is available online.
FACILITIES: 200-car parking lot, restrooms, water, shade ramadas, equestrian staging area.
30301 North Alma School Parkway, Scottsdale.
From Loop 101 in Scottsdale, take the Pima/Princess exit 36 and head north on Pima to Dynamite Road. Turn right (east) and go 2.9 miles to Alma School Pkwy, turn left (north) and drive less than a mile to the trailhead.
