Guests can indulge their inner adventurer with a series of new offerings at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North, provided in partnership with leading local adventure operator, Arizona Outback Adventures.  Kayak the Verde River, take in the beauty of the McDowell Mountains on a scenic hike, or head out for a bike excursion around Troon Mountain.

“Four Seasons is the perfect location for an active adventure getaway,” adds Seth Heald, founder of Arizona Outback Adventures. “Guests have their choice of everything from mountain biking and kayaking to stand up paddle boarding and hiking.  What makes the Four Seasons unique is its proximity to the world class trail system and natural landscape of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Less time in the vehicle and more time on the trail allows our guides to truly immerse the guests in the Sonoran Desert experience.”

Available adventures include:


Fall: Take a late afternoon float on the lower Salt River. The Freemont Cottonwood and Gooding Willow, the only native deciduous trees in the lower Sonoran Desert, showcase golden autumn foliage under the low fall sun angle.

Winter: Enjoy a crisp morning hike to the top of Brown’s Mountain in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, and watch the sunrise light up the Saguaro forest on the slopes below.

Spring: Stop occasionally to smell the flowers as you take in the dazzling array of color while on a mountain bike tour. The aesthetic reward of witnessing spring bloom in the desert is matched by the thrill of carving through the flowing single track mountain bike trails on a high performance mountain bike.

Summer: Paddle off into the sunset on a stand up paddle board on Saguaro Lake. As the sun sets, the lake becomes a mirror for sunset-lit yellow cliffs and towering summer thunderheads over the distant mountains.
