Today, many neighborhoods and homes take pride in being oriented toward and having a view of Pinnacle Peak. Whether up close or from a distance, Pinnacle Peak continues to delight whenever its grandeur comes into view.

The Pinnacle Peak area of North Scottsdale is essentially divided into two sections: the west and east. The west section is to the west of North Pima Road extending to North Scottsdale Road. The east section is east of North Pima Road along the McDowell Mountains. The northern boundary is Happy Valley Road and descends south to the DC Ranch and Grayhawk areas.

Did You Know?

Pinnacle Peak Park, a 150-acre expanse housing the renowned 3,169-foot Pinnacle Peak summit in Scottsdale, features a popular 1 ¾ mile non-loop hiking trail. Originally 184 acres, 35 were sold in 1994 to fund the main trail’s construction. After a six-year closure for development, the park reopened in 2002. Historically, the area served as a hub for Hohokam hunting and gathering. Over time, settlers engaged in ranching, mining, and home construction, with many homes oriented toward the majestic Pinnacle Peak.

Also located within the west Pinnacle Peak area are the Pinnacle Peak Country Club and Golf Course, and Pinnacle Peak Country Club Estates. Pinnacle Peak Country Club was founded in 1976 by Jerry Nelson, a developer. Nelson achieved his goal of building one of the best golf courses in North Scottsdale, however, in order to get there, he also had to build all of the roads leading to it, which included Pima Road, Pinnacle Peak Road, and Dynamite Blvd.

The golf course and club were designed to allow for sweeping views of the valley as well as capturing the beauty of the McDowell Mountains. An interesting characteristic of the golf course is that it refrained from the usual desert landscape design, and opted for the more traditional course, which includes tree-lined fairways; a distinct difference from many other Scottsdale courses. The country club offers a variety of activities and amenities allowing members to enjoy a robust and engaging lifestyle.

Members of the country club have access to a fitness center and locker rooms, lighted tennis courts, and a heated lap pool. The club features dining rooms, banquet and reception facilities, and the cleverly named 19th Hole cocktail lounge, where members can relax after visiting the previous 18 holes. In order to maintain its desire for availability, regular membership is limited to 325.

The Pinnacle Peak area is served by the Scottsdale Unified School District, along with many private and charter schools from which families can choose.

Whether traveling north, south, or west, most routine destinations can be reached in 15 minutes or less. For major shopping excursions, just to the south lies the DC Ranch Marketplace, The Scottsdale Quarter, and Kierland Commons. All three of these locations are outdoor centers.

There are also wine and cocktail bars, a cigar lounge, sweet shops, salons, and spa services.

If travel is an important part of your lifestyle, whether for business or pleasure, just a few minutes south, hop on the Loop 101 Freeway and reach Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport in just 30 minutes.

Dozens of both private and public golf courses reside within the City of Scottsdale boundaries. There are also miles and miles of trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding, catering to a variety of different levels of activity.
