  • Trail System
    • Terravita’s Trail System: Pathway to the Sights and Sounds of the Sonoran Desert.

         
      To encourage exploration of Terravita’s beautiful setting, a trail system crisscrosses the property for all to enjoy without ever leaving the security of the gated community.  Whether biking, walking or just taking the dog out for some fresh air, seven miles of trails accommodate everything from a peaceful diversion to a brisk workout.

      The two-mile nature trail weaves its way Terravita's trail hiking system in the Sonoran Desertthrough lush Natural Area Open Spaces (NAOS) with the Sonoran Desert’s unique flora and fauna on full display.  Illustrated markers help to identify the rich diversity, and thanks to Terravita’s Desert Appreciation Group and the Desert Awareness Committee of the Desert Foothills Land Trust, residents have a delightful place to learn and appreciate the unique setting that surrounds them.

      Terravita’s non-human inhabitants also call this special place home.  On a typical stroll, rabbits can be seen darting about, hawks gliding on warm updrafts, and quail families scurrying along with their little ones feverishly following behind.  Ground squirrels, falcons, roadrunners, cardinals, and more also add to the sights and sounds of Terravita’s vibrant slice of Sonoran Desert.
