Pinnacle Peak Area

Surrounded by the magnificence of the lush high Sonoran desert, the Pinnacle Peak area of far North Scottsdale is nestled at the northern end of the McDowell Mountains where Mother Nature’s majestic treasures are on full display. Home to a number of exclusive master-planned communities, including Troon, Troon North, Desert Highlands and Estancia, these one-of-a-kind communities boast fabulous views of glittering city lights as well as the soaring spires of Pinnacle Peak and her sibling boulder-strewn mountains and hillsides.

Years ago, visionary planning went into making this breathtaking area the haven that it is for those who enjoy an amenity-rich lifestyle. Designed by world-renowned professional golfers with instantly recognizable names, championship golf courses dot the rugged landscape, ensuring golf aficionados will be challenged to their heart’s – and handicap’s – content. It’s important to note that one need not be a die-hard golfer to savor the high standards of this luxurious lifestyle, since these country club communities abound with social activities and some also feature tennis gardens to round out a rich menu of recreational choices.

While tucked deep in the desert, Pinnacle Peak communities are within 10 to 15 minutes of the Loop 101 freeway, providing easy access to all that the Phoenix and Scottsdale metropolitan areas have to offer: a wide variety of fine dining options, quaint eateries, upscale shopping, charming boutiques, first-rate cultural venues, numerous theaters, professional sports arenas and more. Also located nearby are busy business and financial corridors, top-rated public and private schools as well as some of the world’s most renowned medical facilities, including the Mayo Clinic and the new Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital.

Pinnacle Peak Trail is a 3.6 mile trail located in Scottsdale. The trail is used for hiking, jogging, horseback riding and climbing access. Fantastic views of the Valley of The Sun are the bikers reward. Open from dawn to dusk. The Sierra Club rates the 150-acre Pinnacle Peak as a moderate hike with an elevation gain of approximately 1,300 feet. The trail has a very smooth tread with a number of ups and downs over the course of the 1.75 mile trail (one way). It is not a loop trail so you come back over the same trail. High point on the trail is 2,889', the lowest point is 2,366', and the elevation at the trailhead is 2,570'. 
 
Pinnacle Peak Park Hiking and rock climbing will take you to spectacular views of the valley. Rock climbing, for experienced climbers with appropriate gear, is permitted in three areas of the park with a variety of routes and skill levels. Amenities include an 90 space paved parking area (including 4 motorcycle parking spaces at the west end of the lot) restrooms, drinking fountain, ramada, and 4 picnic tables. The park is home to numerous native plants and animals.
