PEAK CONDITION

On the Scottsdale scene, it’s the resorts that draw but the peaks that awe. Hike the latest preserve at Arizona’s PINNACLE PEAK PARK, covering 150 public acres of Sonoran red rocks, including a 3.5-mile walking and horseback riding trail, for a gentler yet equally scenic summit compared to nearby Camelback. Get vertical at one of three rock climbing areas, or go nocturnal by calling ahead for a schedule of guided moonlight hikes. www.scottsdaleaz.gov/parks/pinnacle
