Great hiking for all levels
Apr 2021 • Solo
Spur Cross Ranch offers a great variety of hiking for all skill levels.

For a minimal fee of $3/person, you can enjoy this area for a full day of hiking or a short hike that meets your skill level.

Start at the nature center where ranch/park volunteers will collect your entry fee, then give you a map and make suggestions for your hike - again dependent on your skill level and time commitment.

Be sure to wear good hiking shoes/boots and bring ample water and snacks.

These trails are shared by horseback riders as well and the trails offer a lot of large saguaro cactus, wildflowers, and great views.

There are picnic tables and port-a-potties at the nature center entrance.

A hidden oasis just 2 blocks from town
Mar 2021
This lovely gem has 4 quaint rooms, each with their own entrance. Very clean and all the amenities you might need. There is a very enticing shared deck. Very accommodating and friendly management. Our room window overlooked donkeys and a pack of javelinas that roamed through in the morning. It is only a few blocks walk to town center for food and shopping. No breakfast service at the moment due to covid, so walk up to Local Johnnys!

Fun hike!! Beautiful desert!
Feb 2021 • Family
We hiked here with grandchildren- teens and I am amazed at the beauty of the desert! There are many cactus that are huge! If we had been later they would be blooming!! The trails are rocky and lots of up and down so wear good shoes and take water!! There are bridges and so water was there this trip. It is free and we saw quite a few people!!

Wonderful trails that show off the rich diversity of the AZ dessert. Huge saguaros, deep creek valleys. Miles and miles to explore.

Amazingly Beautiful Hike!
Feb 2021 • Couples
This area displays the Sonoran Desert at its finest! The trails are wide and clearly marked. We hiked the Spur Cross to Dragonfly Trails. These take you across the Flowing Cave Creek on a wooden plant bridge, from the desert to the mountains with awesome views, through a saguaro forest, past petroglyphs , down to along a riverbed ( dry at this time of year) past an old mine tunnel and back up to a large dirt parking area approx 3.5 miles.
There are many hiking trails and you can add to the length of your hike should you want to. The conservation area is staffed by volunteers who are extremely friendly and helpful. For $3 each they provide you with a trail map. If you’ve already paid to visit Cave Creek Regional Park or are camping there you don’t need to pay the fee.
It is an amazingly beautiful area and we look forward to returning next year perhaps toward the end of February in hopes of seeing the desert wildflowers in full bloom.

great Hikes
Feb 2020
Want two short and not too strenuous hikes but still have excellent views? This is for you. Just outside Cave Creek, you can take the free hike and descend into a small valley just below Elephant head peek or pay a couple of dollars and take the hike that is a little further in. Did both and really enjoyed them.

Outstanding Hike in the Foothills
Mar 2020
I am relatively new to the Cave Creek area and my Son and his girlfriend came to visit for a long weekend. I had not been in SpurCross before as I have been too busy. Their visit was the excuse I needed to visit SpurCross and we had an amazing time in this vastly beautiful area. Trails range from easy to challenging but no matter where we went, the views were spectacular. SpurCross was well maintained and a real local treasure. This area is decidedly different from the Sonoran Desert and not to be missed. Entrance fee is $3, parking is ample and the experience is memorable.
