FIRE BAN INFORMATION
Effective
Tuesday, May 26, 2015 - Thursday, September 3, 2015 (Tentative)
Maricopa County's regional parks will initiate the annual fire ban. This includes banning the use of all
campfire, fire pits and charcoal grills; however, it is still acceptable to use gas/propane grills in designated areas such as the ramada areas, semi-developed and developed camping sites, and along the shoreline at Lake Pleasant Regional Park.
If the parks do not receive ample rain during the monsoon season, the Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department
may extend the fire ban to protect the parks resources and ensure visitor safety. To learn more, click here.

As with all Maricopa County Parks, equestrians are welcome into the park riding their own horse and must stay on designated trails. All trails are multi-use unless otherwise designated. All trail users are encouraged to practice proper trail etiquette.

Horse Staging Area
A staging area for your horse(s) is available at this park. Please view our
maps section for available trails.

Trails
Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area offers over seven miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. Park trails range in length from 1.2 miles to 4.6 miles and range in difficulty from easy to difficult.

A scenic, but difficult trail, is Elephant Mountain. Designated for hikers and equastrians, this trail leads visitors to the adjacent Tonto National Forest.

The trails within Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area are very popular due to the high elevation and dense vegetation.

All trails are multi-use unless otherwise designated. All trail users are encouraged to practice proper trail etiquette.

Always remember to carry plenty of water and let someone know where you are going.
