About Cave Creek

"Where the Wild West Lives" is Cave Creek's motto. Rodeo events, saloons and western shops are still very much a part of the town’s fabric. Its trails, open spaces and wildlife habitats attract outdoor enthusiasts from all walks of life.

Cave Creek Regional Park and Gateway Desert Awareness Park offer horse and hiking trails, as well as an amphitheater and demonstration garden.

The Wild West culture and historic architecture blend seamlessly with newer construction, making Cave Creek living the best of both worlds.
