One of the best kept local secrets for hikers and nature lovers, Spur Cross is one of the newest additions to Maricopa County Regional Park System. The conservation area encompasses 2,154 acres of diverse, rugged upper Sonoran Desert. The north Valley location, accessible from the town of Cave Creek (Spur Cross and Cave Creek Roads), contains fascinating archaeology sites and lush riparian areas along Cave Creek, which flows throughout the winter months. Remnants of early mining and ranching, from which the park gets its name, are still apparent in the park. This area is a must see for all wildflower lovers in the spring. The abundant vegetation present in the conservation area provides a rich habitat for a diverse assemblage of wildlife. Spur Cross is a hiker’s dream – there are many miles of terrain from easy to extremely difficult. Consult the ranger maps for details. Horseback riding and foot traffic on all paths, biking on limited paths – no ATVs or other motorized vehicles. Open year round Sun – Thurs 6am-8pm; Fri-Sat 6am-10pm.
