Using the trail system that runs throughout McDowell Mountain Ranch, you can easily reach the community center, the Desert Canyon shopping center, the elementary and middle schools, the public library, and the aquatic center within just minutes. The fact that a number of the community’s streets border generous wash areas and many of the homes offer amazing city light and mountain views is what has given this community its name.

All the models have two or three car garages.
