About North Mountain
North Mountain, Arizona, was a campground for the Phoenix Indians at the turn of the century. It's no wonder the Indians chose this area for their families, as it is the beauty of this undeveloped desert scene of the Sonoran Desert that attracts the wild side in us. From its native plants of saguaro and prickly pear cactus to the unusual animal residency of the geckos, javelina and red-tailed hawks, to the small-town ambience it breathes, Mother Nature has never been more proud. So whether it's a home-made picnic in the hills you seek, or a breath-taking hike in North Mountain at an impressive 2,194 feet, you're sure to feel at one with nature and God Himself. And no matter what time of year you sling on your backpack and hiking boots, you're sure to be impressed with the exquisite beauty of this hidden secret of the ages. If it was good enough for the Indians, it's good enough for you!
