If you’re into hiking the valley has dozens and dozens of great hikes, but a really popular one is called Tom’s Thumb near the McDowell Mountains. It is within a 20 minute drive of our Scottsdale dental office.
Tom’s Thumb – Scottsdale Area Hike
You need to bring lots of water as it is close to 3 hours of hiking, but stunning views, and you may run into a rattlesnake or two.
