Co będziecie robić

After picking up our hiking supplies, we'll hit the trail where we'll explore the amazing sights and sounds of the Sonoran Desert in Phoenix, Arizona.

Our adventure route winds through classic Sonoran Desert terrain, through a dry wash, over a quartz boulder field and onto a rocky viewpoint to the south that overlooks the sprawling Valley of the Sun. We'll continue our journey, traversing switchbacks along a ridge that is reminiscent of ridge hiking in the Grand Canyon to the saddle of the mountain range where we'll take a breather and enjoy drinks and trail snacks.

There will be plenty of great photo opportunities, and if you are in an adventurous mood, we'll continue to a higher ridge with an awe-inspiring western view that captures the entire massive Piestawa Peak in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve.

Your Mad Desert Trekking guide will share details about the unique strategies plants and animals use to survive in the extreme conditions of the Sonoran Desert. You'll learn fun and fascinating facts about the geology and history of native people who have thrived in the Valley of the Sun for more than a thousand years.

We love the Sonoran Desert ... and we know you will, too, during your adventure hike with Mad Desert Trekking.

The experience was really nice and spent a good time with Matt. I particularly liked his sharings about the parks and his recommandations. He really adapted the hike with the persons he’s going with. Thanks a lot !

Matt is an amazing guide, very knowledgeable, patient, and overall good energy. Even in the rain the hike was awesome. Unfortunately I wasn't in the best shape to complete the trail as intended. No worries though that just simply gives me an opportunity to hike again with Matt for next time! Lol! If you're in Phoenix area make sure to check it out!

Matt was very knowledgeable and taught us East Coasters a lot about cacti and the local landscape. He also provided backpacks with bottled water, snacks, and hand sanitizer! (He even kept on his double layered mask throughout the entire hike! Unnecessary but very appreciated). All in all, a very kind, smart and easy-going guide who can tailor your hike to whatever you’re wanting.
