For desert serenity, head out on this Scottsdale trail

The 4.8-mile Sunrise Trail and its easternmost trailhead, completed in spring, are the latest additions to the 36,400-acre McDowell Sonoran Preserve.

The first half of the trail rises quickly through lush desert and boulders to a view-grabbing ridge; a short spur leads to the 3,069-foot summit for sweeping, 360° vistas of mountains and Phoenix high-rises. ―Nora Burba Trulsson
