Arizona is unlike any other place in the world. Within our state borders we encompass almost every type of climate and terrain known to man. The basin and range topography gives us our deep desert valleys surrounded by enormous trees and mountains (snow capped in the winter). This immense diversity packed into such a small area allows us to embark on adventures that most people can only imagine. Whether you are looking to explore the rugged yet beautiful desert terrain, or check out some pristine single track through the high pines, we can make your stay in Arizona an unforgettable experience. So join the Cactus Adventure Crew and let us show you what's good!

 At Cactus Adventures we pride ourselves in having a top notch operation. From our convenient delivery service to our quality bikes and guides, we have it all!

Cactus Adventures brings your desert adventure to you. We will meet you right at the South Mountain trail head with bikes, helmets, anything you need to have a great cactus adventure and be there to pick up the bikes when you are done. Easy, fun, no hassles. If you want a guided tour, our guides will pick you up from your resort or hotel and bring you to the many beautiful locations for mountain biking in the phoenix metropolitan area. Our guests favorites are the South Mountain trails (especially Desert Classic) and the trails at McDowell Mountain Park Preserve near Fountain Hills (especially the Pemberton Loop and Sport Loops).

South Mountain - Everything from winding buff single track to super gnar full blown downhill, South Mountain has everything.

Camelback Mountain - All hiking, no biking, but some of the best hiking around. Take the kids up Cholla Trail, or challenge yourself to make it up Echo Canyon. This is a great spot for hiking and it is right in the center of Old town Scottsdale.

McDowell Mountain Park - The all time favorite in the area. McDowell Mountain Park is one of the greatest places to go for any skill level of bike riders or hikers. Whether you are a pro racer or a total newbie there is something out here for you. The trails are super buff, twisty, fun single track and they are all loops.

McDowell Sonoran Preserve
- Located on the west side of the McDowell Mountain Park is an area SUPREME for biking and hiking. Enormous climbs and descents with lots of flora and fauna and the most pristine trails you have ever seen. Nestled right in North Scottsdale this area is full of great challenges and rewards.
