 Events for San Tan Mtn 
<September 2014>

San Tan Mountain Regional Park offers over eight miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. Park trails range in length from 1.1 miles to over 5 miles, and range in difficulty from easy to strenuous.

If you are looking for an easy, relatively short hike, 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. In addition to its length, some may consider certain areas of the San Tan Trail difficult due to washes, soft soil and slick or rocky steep mountain slopes. We encourage hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders to use extreme caution in these areas. Another visitor favorite is the Malpais Hills Trail as it displays a unique perspective of Rock Peak and the Malpais Hills. Don't forget to keep an eye out for wildlife such as javelinas, coyotes, and Gila Monsters!

The trails within the San Tan Mountain Regional Park are very popular because they offer a unique perspective of the lower Sonoran Desert with wonderful wildlife, plant-life and scenic mountain views. Whatever your heart desires, San Tan Mountain Regional Park has a trail to fit your hiking, biking or horseback riding needs.

All trails are multi-use unless otherwise designated. All trail users are encouraged to practice proper trail etiquette.

Always remember to carry plenty of water and let someone know where you are going
