Why you should visit the Sonoran Desert in spring

Arizona has different exciting outdoor activities. Motorsport in the desert is one of the most popular. There are numerous opportunities for off-roading recreation with your friends/family in the Sonoran Desert, either as a driver or enjoying the view as a passenger, especially in spring.

We want you to know why you shouldn’t miss a trip to the Sonoran Desert in the spring season. The following are several reasons from our experience of what it feels like to be in the Sonoran Desert at the best time of the year!

First of all, perfect weather

The average high temperature is 71° in February, 76° in March, and 85° in April. Nice weather! There’s nothing like our beautiful sky with less than a couple of inches of rain throughout spring.

Phoenix may be the 6th largest city in the United States, but it has a lot more wide-open space than people often expect.

Colorful flora

Blooming cactuses and wildflowers reveal why the Sonoran Desert is among the most breathtaking deserts in the world. This is a magical place to be! You will also find some beautiful blooms on the saguaro cactus. During spring, the desert takes on amazingly colorful life – it manifests itself.

Exploring the trails 

There will be a wide variety of trails to choose from where you can pick the types of scenarios, the time to complete the trail, wildlife, streams around the trail, and more! We can’t tell you which one to choose, but we will tell you which ones not to miss out on: the trails at the Tonto Forest!

Spring is the best season for exploring the Sonoran Desert, whether while hiking, riding, biking, kayaking, canyoneering, or paddleboarding.

Renting an off-road vehicle is a great choice to explore the desert. Time to Ride AZ offers unguided tours with the best units. We are the #1 self-guided ATV and UTV tour rental in Arizona.

We are located in Scottsdale, which is commonly defined by its high quality of life, and in 1993 was one of several cities to receive a “Most Livable City” award from the United States Conference of Mayors. You’ll understand why the city is considered one of the best places to vacation for family spring breaks once you get here.
