My name is Jon, both my wife Amber and I are avid travelers, adventurers and scuba dive instructors. I am an occupational safety consultant by trade and love exploring our state and country. We have a great hidden gem right in the middle of Phoenix that most don't know about. The Phoenix Mountain Preserve has over 70 miles of trails that I have been exploring for the last five years. These trails are less crowded and just as spectacular as some of the more well known hikes in the area. I will show you the same views and gorgeous sunsets that will make you feel like you are far outside the city limits.
