Trails and Desert Preserves

Please Note: There are no ramada reservations on major holidays including Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving (and the Friday following), July 4, Christmas, Memorial Day, Labor Day and any other official holiday recognized by the City of Phoenix. On these holidays, all desert-preserve based ramadas are available on a first come, first served basis.

Phoenix is home to tens of thousands of acres of untouched desert lined with majestic saguaro and cholla cactuses, home to coyotes, great horned owls and gila monsters -- all just minutes from downtown Phoenix. It's no surprise Phoenix is one of National Geographic's best hiking cities and has been recognized by by AARP and TravelNerd as one of the Top Urban Destinations for Nature Lovers.
