The Maricopa Trail winds through the county, connecting the 10 Maricopa County Regional parks on a 315 mile scenic and diverse route.

Now in its seventh year, the Cave Creek Thriller plays host to the 50K which explores the Maricopa Trail in a point-to-point race before finishing inside Cave Creek Regional Park. This race is also the first race of the Desert Runner Trail Series hosted by Aravaipa Running. The Cave Creek Thriller 50K is a point to point race that starts at the Agua Fria Trailhead near Lake Pleasant and travels along the Maricopa Trail. The race then enters the Cave Creek Regional Park to finish along the Go John, Quartz & Overton Trails.
