Tucked in between some of central Arizona’s best-preserved wilderness areas, the town of Rio Verde is a great escape for those looking to get closer to nature while maintaining an easy distance to a city. Just past the northeastern reaches of Phoenix, Rio Verde has been able to maintain its little corner of the world with ease. With a history of agriculture, the community knows how to enjoy the land around them. With the Verde River running north-south just to the east of town and a variety of outdoor adventuring opportunities within easy reach, Rio Verde serves as the perfect destination to rent an RV and get exploring the beauty of the American Southwest.
When you book an RV in Maricopa County, you get to experience the natural beauty of the Southwest all around you all while remaining close to the urban centers of Arizona. This balance creates a perfect escape from reality as you hike over the mountains, walk the halls of the museums, and take in that famous desert night sky.
Just to the south of Rio Verde is the McDowell Mountain Regional Park near Fountain Hills, Arizona. The park is home to hundreds of Native American petroglyphs and several archaeological dig sites, so if learning about the prehistoric history of the area is an interest to you, a day spent at McDowell may be necessary. With 40 miles of hiking trails, you’ll be able to see the petroglyphs first hand, as well as see the variety of desert plant life. And if you want to learn more about the stunning desert night sky, you can stay in the park until one of the evening stargazing talks begins.
Just north of Rio Verde is the Tonto National Forest near Payson, Arizona. At almost three million acres of land, the Tonto National Forest is the largest national forest in Arizona. Tonto National Forest is home to a variety of habitats, such as the quintessential Southwestern deserts, mountains ranges, pine forests, and even a few lakes and rivers. Thanks to the wide variety of landscapes, there are a wide variety of recreational options available. One favorite place to visit is the Fossil Creek Wild and Scenic River. Here, you can canoe down the 17-mile river and get to see the park from a whole new angle. Not only that, but the bright limestone formations that decorate the banks are something of a natural marvel.
Just a short drive away and a wonderful half-day, or even full-day trip is the Phoenix Sonoran Preserve in Phoenix, Arizona. With 18,000 acres ready to be explored thanks to 36 miles of trails, the Phoenix Sonoran Preserve offers a small outpost of Arizona’s natural wilderness within very easy reach of the country’s capital. Throughout the park, there are trails of varying levels of difficulty that provide comfort to those looking for easier hikes and challenges to those wanting more arduous hikes. Regardless of which trail you choose, be sure to pack plenty of water.
