Spur Cross Conservation Area Trails

44000 N Spur Cross Rd, Cave Creek

This protected area encompasses 2,154 acres of diversely rugged land that features archaeological sites, ancient petroglyphs and lush riparian spots along Cave Creek which generally flows with its crystal waters during the winter months. All of this natural beauty of rolling hills and mountains is dotted with tall Saguaro cacti of unique shapes and forms that have taken thousands upon thousands of years to grow. There are ruins of the ancient Hohokam Indians and an old dude ranch that likely holds many secrets of times past. A scenic, but difficult trail, is Elephant Mountain. Designated for hikers and equestrians, this trail leads visitors to the adjacent Tonto National Forest.
Length: 1.2 to 4.6 miles
