I was taken on the Hieroglyphics canyon Trail by a friend I was visiting. The trail was long enough to give us some good exercise, but not an exhausting hike. The terrain and cactus were great to hike through. At the end of our 1 1/2 mile hike I was pleas

Super hike in the Superstitions!
Excellent day hike to reach the Fremont Saddle for a wonderful view of Weaver’s Needle. Very rocky trail, so make sure you have proper hiking shoes and I’d recommend hiking poles for additional balance. I wouldn’t take a non-hiker here due to the unevenne

This beautiful trail is easy to get to with a decent amount of parking. Beware holiday weekends because the crowds are huge and parking becomes non existent. We’ve had to cancel our plans before due to lack of parking. The trailhead has a Port-a-Potty for

Beautiful course, but nobody tells you it's cart path only
Haven't played here in years and wanted to go back. Made a tee time reservation online, $95 plus tax, got to the course, dropped bag, parked car, paid in the pro shop, hit balls, practiced putting, met my playing partners, gave my receipt to the starter a

New Horses for Trail Rides
Wow! Ever ridden a Tennessee Walker through the desert? Here's your chance! The Ranch is open again for trail rides. Besides the eleven old faithful mounts from other years, the ranch has a string of Walking horses. There's no better place to see the desert than at the Donnelly D Spur Ranch. You and your family and friends will love it. Her prices are reasonable. There's a horse for every level of rider from first timers to experienced. 2 hour. 1 and 1/2 hour and 1 hour rides available. The ranch also offers boarding and leasing. It's one of my favourite places on earth.

I'd hoped for more views on the course. I've played courses in the Valley where the course layout takes advantage of the mountains surrounding the course. Unfortunately, this course just runs through the valleys. That being said, it's a solid layout. Ther
