What is there to do?

There are many beautiful areas in the USA, and the San Tan Mountain Regional Park is one of those places!

This beautiful part of Arizona is 10,000 acres of lower Sonoran Desert, with wildlife and activities to fill those days out for active and adventurous families!

The visitor center is the best place to start for your visit to the San Tan Mountain Regional. It's here you can pick up educational tidbits to begin your education of the park, and ask all the questions you want about the best place for you to go.

Kids always love the wildlife exhibits where they can see what they might be able to spot, as well as see those sweet tortoise at the tortoise exhibit!

The park itself sees you at an elevation from 1,400 feet to over 2,500 - so get ready for some pretty cool views! The vegetation is constantly changing, and there are a number of wildlife species in the area.

San Tan Mountain Regional Park is also a great place to get out and get active! There are a number of hiking trails that you can enjoy, and they also allow other activities such as biking and horseback riding. 

In fact, there are over 80 miles of trails! The trail range in length from 1.1 miles to over 5 miles, and no matter what your experience, there is a trail for you. There are the perfect beginners trails, to those more challenging options.
