Cave Creek Regional Park

“Marshmallows!” It’s just a fun word to say, right? The Ranger will make it even more fun as we sit around the campfire roasting sticky, sweet “marshmallows”! Sometimes we hear coyotes howling and owls hooting! Sometimes …, well, you just never know! Meet out back of the Nature Center for some fireside fun. No pets, please.

Hike for the Health of it!

Cave Creek Regional Park

Folks of all ages are encouraged to join us on Thursday mornings for a guided hike along one of the Park’s scenic trails! Wildflowers are certainly a much better view than a treadmill can offer! Our trails are easy to moderate and range from 2-6 miles and 1-2 hours.
