2009 GREATER PHOENIX ULTIMATE GUIDE TO LIVING HERE 95 recreation ESTRELLA MOUNTAIN REGIONAL PARK This large park, encompassing 19,840 acres of desert and mountains in Goodyear, is located near the confluence of the Gila and Agua Fria rivers in the Southwest Valley. The majority of the park is pristine desert similar to the landscape encountered by the first settlers and explorers — the wild wild West. The park offers more than 33 miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. Park trails range in length from 2.3 miles to 8.8 miles and in difficulty from easy to strenuous. Be sure to stay on the designated trails. Also within the park is Estrella Mountain Golf Course designed by renowned golf course architect Red Lawrence. Renovated in 1998, this traditional par 71 championship parkland- style golf course opened in 1962 and was totally renovated in 1998. 623- 932- 3811 www. maricopa. gov/ parks WHITE TANK MOUNTAIN REGIONAL PARK White Tank boasts more than 30,000 acres and 10 trails, and is perfect for horseback riding. Choose a one- or two- hour ride at a cost ranging from $ 30 to $ 50. White Tanks Riding Stables also offers a twilight wagon ride — a Conestoga without the top. The park also has great hiking for the advanced hiker and has barrier- free trails for individuals with disabilities or people with strollers. One of the most popular trails is the Waterfall Trail, easily trekked by just about anyone. White Tanks Park also has a 10- mile competitive mountain biking track. 623- 935- 2505 www. maricopa. gov/ parks CAMELBACK MOUNTAIN Every year, thousands of hikers and nature lovers are drawn to Camelback Mountain's red sandstone cliffs and signature hump. Two strenuous and somewhat tricky trails — best left for more experienced hikers — lead to the summit. Beginners may enjoy the easier trails along Camelback's base. 602- 262- 6862 www. phoenix. gov/ parks LEFT: Hiking at Echo Mountain in Scottsdale.
