Best Arizona Active Adult Communities for Bicycling

I noticed a few themes in the book Younger Next Year… one being STAY ACTIVE.

Not the P90X active, rather get moving and stay moving.

A bike ride is a great way to get your heart pumping.  In the Active Adult Communities, you will see lots of people headed up to the recreation center on their bikes, many of the communities have bicycle paths in and around the community as well.  Making the 55+ communities a great place to get on your bike and get moving.

A few of the Best communities with additional bike paths and trails close by…

Trilogy at Vistancia in Peoria has bicycle friendly streets and the Discovery Trail a 3.5 mile paved nature trail system meandering thru the Master Planned  Community of Vistancia.

Heritage Village IV in Scottsdale is close to the Camelback Walk, a paved multi use path along the parks and golf courses in Scottsdale.

The City of Gilbert is utilizing the natural washes for bicycle and walking paths, and are easily accessed from Trilogy at Power Ranch.

Trilogy at Verde River   Rio Verde, Tonto Verde  are right around the corner from McDowell Mountain Regional Park, where 15 miles of mountain bike trails await, trails are marked for beginner up to expert.  This is a popular location for mountain bike racing too!

MountainBrook Village in Gold Canyon is close to several different mountain bike trails, most with some hilly terrain.

 

The Best Arizona Active Adult Communities with Mountain Views

There is something more than majestic to mountain views.  They draw us to them like any aspect of nature.  They help us stay calm, focused and centered.  It is not surprising that people love a home that has a beautiful view of the Mountains.

The challenge is building homes on a hillside is much costlier than building on flat land.

Most of the Phoenix area Valley of the Sun is flat as well.  We do have Mountains surrounding the city.   Where will you have the best chance of having magnificent Mountain Views?  In the communities closest to the biggest mountains.

The most significant mountains in the area are to the north and east of Phoenix; Tonto National Forrest, and Superstition Mountains.  There are a few other notable mountains scattered around as well.

In the northeast, the views of Tonto Nationa Forrest and McDowell Mountains from Rio Verde, Tonto Verde and Trilogy at Verde River are truly spectacular. Then I would head to Trilogy at Wickenburg Ranch, the terraced lots have created amazing views from many of the home sites.  Heading out to Gold Canyon the views of the Superstitions are awesome at Mountain Brook Village.  Next on my list would be to the north of Tucson the SaddleBrook Communitieswith views of the Catalina’s.

This next group have fewer homes with mountain views, but views are available.  I then would go to Canta Mia next to the Estrella Mountain Regional Park, and Sun City Festivalwith views of the White Tank Mountains.  Lastly I include Solera at Jonson Ranch located next to the San Tan Mountains.
