If you are looking to enjoy some fun in the sun, here are three unique outdoor destinations you don't want to miss:
Deer Park Petroglyph Preserve
Known for connecting the past to the present, Deer Park was born out of the Adobe Dam project in 1980. Nestled in the historic Hedgepath Foothills, it encompasses nearly fifty acres and features the largest concentration of Native American petroglyphs in the Phoenix area with 1,571 designs on 579 boulders. Visitors can explore a short trail and exhibits such as Leaving Marks: The Rock Art and Archaeology of Deer Valley. It tells how our presence in this landscape connects us to the people who were here before.
South Mountain Park/Preserve
Made up of three mountain ranges, the South Mountain Park/Preserve stretches more than sixteen thousand acres. At more than 2,300 feet, Dobbins Point is the highest point in the park accessible to the public. It's a popular spot among those who want to enjoy a long walk and an unobstructed view of the valley. South Mountain is one of the largest municipality operated parks in the United States, and also features more than fifty miles of trails suitable for hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking.
Lost Dutchman State Park
Named after a fabled lost goldmine, the Lost Dutchman State Park is situated on the Apache Trail. It offers incredible views of the most picturesque portions of the Superstition Mountains and is open daily until 10:00 p.m. Guests can enjoy a challenging hike on the Siphon Draw Trail to the top of the flatiron or a leisurely stroll along the Native Plant Trail. Don't be surprised to see mule deer, coyotes, and other wildlife along the way.
