Cave Creek Regional Park, nearly 3,000 acres ranging in elevation from 2,000 to 3,060 feet, includes 11 miles of trails traveled by hikers, bikers and horseback riders.

Out-of-state residents may not be familiar with the Arizona Constitution's provision allowing a game of chance to be invoked to settle a tie in a Town Council election, as was the case in Cave Creek when Adam Trenk defeated incumbent Thomas McGuire when the king of hearts he pulled from a deck of fifty-two trumped McGuire's six of hearts.For someone just needs some time to get out of the big city or wants to be acquainted with the western customs, Cave Creek could be the satisfying reprieve.
