Best places to hike

Pinnacle Peak boasts a 4.5 star average on Yelp with 81 reviews and all the reviews have one thing in common: They all agree that it’s a beautiful park with great views and provides hiking options for casual hikers and families alike. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen! http://www.yelp.com/biz/pinnacle-peak-scottsdale

The McDowell Sonoran Preserve has 51 five star reviews and it’s no surprise they do, with their dog-friendly environment and 120 miles of non-motorized, multi-use trails (hike/bike/horse) accessed from multiple trailheads. Yelpers especially love the educational nature walk while they burn calories. http://www.yelp.com/biz/mcdowell-sonoran-preserve-scottsdale

South Mountain is just outside of Scottsdale and a hike everyone should do once! The hike provides one of a kind views and you might even spot some horseback riders along the way! Pack a picnic and enjoy a meal and a view of the Valley when you make it to the top of this 4.5 star hike with 144 reviews! http://www.yelp.com/biz/south-mountain-park-phoenix

Need some hiking gear before you head out to a trail or two? Stop by the Arizona Hiking Shack and walk away with everything from hiking boots and water bottles to climbing and camping gear. This shop has a 4 star average and is a Yelp favorite for amateur and professional hikers alike. http://www.yelp.com/biz/arizona-hiking-shack-phoenix

The Yelp events page also promotes upcoming comedy shows. We even have several members of the Yelp community who get together on a regular basis to hike with each other!
