Consisting of over 10,000 acres, this park southeast of Phoenix is a fine example of the lower Sonoran Desert. The trails within the San Tan Mountain Regional Park are very popular because they offer a unique perspective of wonderful wildlife, plant-life and scenic mountain views. Trails are open for horseback riders, biking and hiking. If you are looking for an easy, relatively short trail, the Moonlight Trail is the perfect choice, as it provides a scenic and rather mild hike for all to enjoy. If you are looking for a longer more difficult hike, try the 5.1-mile San Tan Trail. This trail winds you through the Broken Lands and Central Valley portions of the park to the top of the Goldmine Mountains. Park hours are Sun-Thurs: 6 am - 8 pm and Fri-Sat: 6 am - 10 pm, 365 days a year.
