"One of three prominent peaks in McDowell Sonoran Preserve, Thompson Peak rises to nearly 4,000 feet. Enjoy a leisurely hike from the town of Fountain Hills through Sonoran Desert foothills; then make the invigorating climb up a steep service road to Thompson Peak’s summit. Notice a sign-in kiosk at the park gate, where you’ll find self-pay envelopes. Be sure to deposit the requisite $2-per-person entrance fee. (If you have an annual pass to Maricopa County Parks, you may enter without additional payment.) Strike out on Dixie Mine Trail, heading north on the wide, packed-dirt path. The surface quickly becomes rocky and uneven as the trail turns west." Read more
