If you prefer self-powered forms of exercise, you’re in luck — jogging, walking and hiking options abound on the 250 acres surrounding The Phoenician resort in Scottsdale. Follow one of the many paths and walkways that run throughout the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, or head for the residential areas just across Camelback Road for a change of scenery. If you’re a serious jogger or hiker, be sure to try one of the hiking trails that start on the east side of The Phoenician at the base of Camelback Mountain. In addition to the exercise benefits, you’ll be rewarded with some of the most spectacular views in the valley. Just be sure to bring plenty of water wherever you go; staying hydrated is a must in the arid desert climate.
