Maricopa County Parks and Recreation: Wildflowers & Butterflies Hike

Join Ranger Kevin for an afternoon hike in search of seasonal beauty.

Join Ranger Kevin for a roughly 3.5-mile hike along the Spur Cross and Dragonfly Loop Trails. We’ll be pausing to look at wildflowers and butterflies as well as a variety of desert plants and animals along the way. The trail is rated moderately difficult with a substantial change of elevation. Please wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and bring plenty of water. Hats and sunscreen are also highly recommended. We’ll meet at the trailhead area just past the entry station (near the bathrooms and picnic tables). NO pets, please.

Please note: Entry to Spur Cross Conservation Area is $3 per person. Cash only is accepted, and exact change is much appreciated.

Limit 20 participants. To register, please email Ranger Kevin at and include your name, phone number and the number of people attending. If you find you cannot attend a program after you have registered, please email back ASAP so those on the waiting list may be contacted. Registration for this program will close on 3/24/23.
