Desert Mountain has its own 15-mile private trails system consisting of seven trail segments, each varying in degree of difficulty for a different hiking experience on each.

The system takes hikers to the eastern slope of the Continental Mountains overlooking beautiful desert panoramas and through a colorful riparian basin. From scenic points along the way, hikers can take in views all the way to Tucson’s Catalina Mountains. You can also climb to a 4,100-foot elevation to see local landmarks like Skull Mesa, New River Mesa, Elephant Butte and Harquahala Peak to the west beyond the town of Wickenburg. Desert Mountain is a recipient of the American Trails Developer Award from the non-profit American Trails organization.
