Reach 11 Trail Makes a Comeback!

Rim Lakes Vista Trail # 622

Tempe Lake is probably Phoenix’s finest place to enjoy when the weather is good. Its accessible, clean and always has something going on.

Groom Creek Schoolhouse Trail


Its not too often you visit a 100-year old schoolhouse and find a wheelchair-accessible trail out back. And I’m not talking about your garden variety semi-accessible trail either. This may be one of the best short trails in Arizona.

Goldwater Lake


Tweet I’ve been hanging around Prescott lately. When it is 110° in Phoenix, it is about 90° in Prescott. And it seems pretty easy to find somewhere nearby that is even a little bit cooler. Lynx Lake has a wheelchair accessible trail, and a good picnic area. I have been to Watson Lake once. It […]
